Abstract

Hybrid lead halide perovskites have progressively overcome the horizon of materials for novel, highly efficient solar cells and are now proposed for a variety of optoelectronic, nanoelectronic, and thermoelectric applications. In this Perspective, we focus on a still scarcely explored and yet extremely thrilling playground: the use of lead halide perovskites to design efficient magneto-electronic and magneto-optic applications. Our analysis is pointed to emphasize the unique combination of strong spin-orbit coupling and wide structural and chemical flexibility, which characterize the lead halide perovskites. Using model calculations, we furnish a qualitative evidence of their capabilities for what concerns the charge-spin conversion mechanism, which is basic to some of the most visionary spin-orbitronic implementations, such as the magnetoelectric switching and the spin-diffusive transistor
