Benzyl alcohol-treated CH3NH3PbBr3 nanocrystals exhibiting high luminescence, stability, and ultralow amplified spontaneous emission thresholds.

dc.description.abstractWe report the high yield synthesis of about 11 nm sized CH3NH3PbBr3 nanocrystals with near-unity photoluminescence quantum yield. 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.en_US
