Title: High-Temperature Photoluminescence of CsPbX 3 (X = Cl, Br, I) Nanocrystals

Abstract

Recent synthetic developments have generated intense interest in the use of cesium lead halide perovskite nanocrystals for light-emitting applications. This work presents the photoluminescence (PL) of cesium lead halide perovskite nanocrystals with tunable halide composition recorded as function of temperature from 80 to 550 K. CsPbBr 3 nanocrystals show the highest resilience to temperature while chloride-containing samples show relatively poorer preservation of photoluminescence at elevated temperatures. Thermal cycling experiments show that PL loss of CsPbBr 3 is largely reversible at temperatures below 450 K, but shows irreversible degradation at higher temperatures. Time-resolved measurements of CsPbX 3 samples show an increase in the PL lifetime with temperature elevation, consistent with exciton fission to form free carriers, followed by a decrease in the apparent PL lifetime due to trapping. In conclusion, PL persistence measurements and time-resolved spectroscopies implicate thermally assisted trapping, most likely to halogen vacancy traps, as the mechanism of reversible PL loss.
