The crystalline materials known as Perovskites make up 38% of the volume of the earth. Moreover, they have many very important practical uses, for example in electronics, ultrasonics and in thermal sensing devices. So what are they exactly? Mike Glazer explains how tiny changes in their crystal structures can lead to such a vast array of different properties and why they are so important in our daily lives.

This Discourse is supported by the Bragg Lecture Fund and was filmed on 31 March 2017.

Mike Glazer is an Emeritus Professor of the Oxford University Department of Physics. He is the Vice President of the International Union of Crystallography and recently wrote 'A Very Short Introduction to Crystallography' for Oxford University Press.
