Kyle Kluherz studies semiconductor nanocrystals for various solar photochemistry applications. Kyle studied the local site structure of lanthanide dopants in lead halide perovskites and the unique structure of iodide elpasolite nanocrystals. At NREL, he is working on understanding the structure-property relationships in doped semiconductor nanomaterials, dimer nanoparticles, and chiral perovskite nanocrystals.
