This chapter explores various aspects of perovskite nonstoichiometry and defect chemistry, including the means through which different defects are accommodated by the perovskite crystal structure and the effect they exert on properties. The chapter also demonstrates that defect chemistry not only can serve as an additional tool for tailoring well-established material properties but also could give rise to completely new, unique, and potentially useful properties.
