All-inorganic cesium lead halide perovskite nanocrystals for photodetector applications†
Herein, we describe simple, fast and reproducible halide ion exchange reactions in CsPbX3 (X = Cl, Br, I) nanocrystals (NCs) at room temperature. Through the simple adjustment of the halide ion concentration, the photoluminescence of these NCs can be tuned over the entire visible region (425–655 nm). Photodetector devices based on entirely inorganic CsPbI3 NCs are demonstrated for the first time. The photodetectors exhibited a good on/off photocurrent ratio of 105.
