About the article

srmap-Nimai-mishra-researchThe article reports Ultra-Stable and Near Unity Photoluminescence Quantum Yield Amine Free CsPbBr 3 Perovskite Nanocrystal Post-synthesis Treatment with Lead Bromide. Herein, the researchers have introduced a simple lead bromide (PbBr 2 ) post-treatment process to achieve the near-unity PLQY (>95 %) in amine-free CsPbBr 3 PNCs. Furthermore, PbBr 2 treatment enables these materials to drastically improve stability in different environmental conditions (polar solvents, light, and heat). In addition, a green-emitting down- converted light-emitting diode was fabricated using PbBr 2 treated amine-free CsPbBr 3 PNCs, which shows its considerable prospects for display applications. Thus, the results of the research will promote these PbBr 2 treated amine-free inorganic perovskite nanocrystals for commercial development in optoelectronic applications.

Explanation of the research

Cesium lead halide perovskite nanocrystals (PNCs) have been the flourishing area of research in the field of photovoltaic and optoelectronic applications because of their excellent optical and electronic properties. Mainly, cesium lead bromide (CsPbBr 3 ) NCs with bright green photoluminescence (PL) and narrow full-width at half-maximum (FWHM) of < 25 nm is the most desirable for television displays and green-emitting LEDs. Improving the photoluminescence quantum yields (PLQYs) and optimizing the stability have been challenging tasks to promote cesium lead halide (CsPbX3; X=Cl, Br and I) perovskite nanocrystals (PNCs) for real optoelectronic applications. In recent years, the amine- free synthesis route has become an option for making stable CsPbX 3 PNCs.
