Layered 2d hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIPs) can be created by combining a wide range of possible inorganic components with an even broader range of organic molecules, offering considerable flexibility to fine-tune their synthesizability and properties. This talk focuses on computational... Read More »

The quantum paraelectric behavior and strongly anharmonic lattice dynamics of SrTiO3 have attracted interest for decades. Reflecting the incipient ferroelectric (FE) instability near the quantum critical point and couplings between transverse acoustic (TA) and optic (TO) phonons, anomalous phonon... Read More »
