Achieving high-quality cesium-formamidinium lead iodide (CsxFA1-xPbI3) perovskites with widely tuneable bandgaps
is highly desired for their optoelectronic applications yet remains a challenge because of the different phase transition
behaviour of FAPbI3 and CsPbI3 perovskite during film depositions.1,2 Herein, by utilizing an alkaline-interface-assisted
cation-exchange method, we fabricate a set of highly emissive CsxFA1-xPbI3 perovskite films with fine-tuning Cs-FA
alloying ratio for emission-tuneable near-infrared light-emitting diodes (NIR-LEDs). We reveal that the deprotonation
of FA+ cations and the formation of hydrogen-bonded gels consisting of CsI and FA facilitated by zinc oxide underneath
effectively removes the Cs-FA ion-exchange barrier, promoting the formation of phase-pure CsxFA1-xPbI3 films with
emission filling the gap between that of pure Cs- and FA-based perovskites.3 The obtained NIR-LEDs with narrow
electroluminescence peaking from 715 to 780 nm simultaneously demonstrate high peak external quantum efficiencies
of over 15%, maximum radiances exceeding 300 W sr-1 m-2, and high power conversion efficiencies above 10 % at 100
mA cm-2, representing the best-performing devices based on solution-processed wavelength-tuneable NIR emitters in
the similar region4.
