Title: Is Cs 2 TiBr 6 a promising Pb-free perovskite for solar energy applications?

Abstract

We consider the Pb-free perovskite Cs 2 TiBr 6 and provide complementary experimental and theoretical results suggesting that Cs 2 TiBr 6 in its pristine form might not be suitable for solar energy applications.
