The nanocrystals are formed in the presence of surface-binding ligands through their direct precipitation in a benzyl alcohol/toluene phase. The benzyl alcohol plays a pivotal role in steering the surface ligands binding motifs on the NC surface, resulting in enhanced surface-trap passivation and near-unity PLQY values. We further demonstrate that thin films from purified CH3NH3PbBr3 nanocrystals are stable >4 months in air, exhibit high optical gain (about 520 cm-1), and display stable, ultralow amplified spontaneous emission thresholds of 13.9 ± 1.3 and 569.7 ± 6 μJ cm-2 at one-photon (400 nm) and two-photon (800 nm) absorption, respectively. To the best of our knowledge, the latter signifies a 5-fold reduction of the lowest reported threshold value for halide perovskite nanocrystals to date, which makes them ideal candidates for light-emitting and low-threshold lasing applications.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/141120||ISSN:||1530-6984||DOI:||10.1021/acs.nanolett.7b03272||Rights:||This document is the Accepted Manuscript version of a Published Work that appeared in final form in Nano Letters, copyright © American Chemical Society after peer review and technical editing by the publisher.
