Title: Near-Unity Photoluminescence Quantum Yield in Blue-Emitting Cs 3Cu 2Br 5–xI x(0 ≤ x ≤ 5)

Abstract

Recently, interest in developing efficient, low-cost, nontoxic, and stable metal halide emitters that can be incorporated into solid-state lighting technologies has taken hold. Here we report nontoxic, stable, and highly efficient blue-light-emitting Cs 3Cu 2Br 5–xI x (0 ≤ x ≤ 5). Room-temperature photoluminescence measurements show bright blue emission in the 456 to 443 nm range with near-unity quantum yield for Cs 3Cu 2I 5. Here, density functional theory calculations and power-dependent PL measurements suggest that the emission results from self-trapped excitons induced by strong charge localization within the zero-dimensional cluster structure of Cs 3Cu 2Br 5–xI x.
