Pure zero-dimensional Cs4PbBr6 single crystal rhombohedral microdisks with high luminescence and stability

Author affiliations

Abstract

Zero-dimensional (0D) perovskite Cs4PbBr6 has been speculated to be an efficient solid-state emitter, exhibiting strong luminescense on achieving quantum confinement. Although several groups have reported strong green luminescence from Cs4PbBr6 powders and nanocrystals, doubts that the origin of luminescence comes from Cs4PbBr6 itself or CsPbBr3 impurities have been a point of controversy in recent investigations. Herein, we developed a facile one-step solution self-assembly method to synthesize pure zero-dimensional rhombohedral Cs4PbBr6 micro-disks (MDs) with a high PLQY of 52% ± 5% and photoluminescence full-width at half maximum (FWHM) of 16.8 nm. The obtained rhombohedral MDs were high quality single-crystalline as demonstrated by XRD and SAED patterns. We demonstrated that Cs4PbBr6 MDs and CsPbBr3 MDs were phase-separated from each other and the strong green emission comes from Cs4PbBr6. Power and temperature dependence spectra evidenced that the observed strong green luminescence of pure Cs4PbBr6 MDs originated from direct exciton recombination in the isolated octahedra with a large binding energy of 303.9 meV. Significantly, isolated PbBr64− octahedra separated by a Cs+ ion insert in the crystal lattice is beneficial to maintaining the structural stability, depicting superior thermal and anion exchange stability. Our study provides an efficient approach to obtain high quality single-crystalline Cs4PbBr6 MDs with highly efficient luminescence and stability for further optoelectronic applications.
