Color-stable water-dispersed cesium lead halide perovskite nanocrystals

Author affiliations


Cesium lead halide perovskite nanocrystals are being lately explored for optoelectronic applications due to their emission tunability, high photoluminescence quantum yields, and narrow emission bands. Nevertheless, their incompatibility with polar solvents and composition homogenization driven by a fast anion-exchange are still important drawbacks to overcome. Herein we report on a successful encapsulation of colloidal perovskite nanocrystals within solid–lipid structures mainly consisting of stearic acid. The product is water-stable for a period longer than 2 months and anion-exchange is fully arrested when mixing nanocrystals of different halide compositions. This strategy boosts the potential applications of all-inorganic perovskite nanocrystals for ink-printing.
