Perovskite quantum dots (QDs) as a new type of colloidal nanocrystals have gained significant attention for both fundamental research and commercial applications owing to their appealing optoelectronic properties and excellent chemical processability[1]. For their wide range of potential applications, synthesizing colloidal QDs with high crystal quality is of crucial importance. However, like most common QD systems, those reported perovskite QDs still suffer from a certain density of trapping defects, giving rise to detrimental non-radiative recombination centers and thus quenching luminescence. Very recently, we have proposed an improved synthetic protocol that involves introducing organolead compound trioctylphosphine-PbI2 (TOP-PbI2) as the reactive precursor, which also leads to a significantly improved stability for the resulting perovskite CsPbI3 QD and Sn-Pb alloyed QD solutions[2-4]. We have demonstrated that a high room-temperature photoluminescence quantum yield (PL QY) of up to 100% can be obtained in CsPbI3 perovskite QDs, signifying the achievement of almost complete elimination of the trapping defects. Ultrafast kinetic analysis with time-resolved transient absorption spectroscopy evidences the negligible electron or hole trapping pathways in our QDs, which explains such a high quantum efficiency. Solar cells based on these high-quality perovskite QDs exhibit power conversion efficiency of 12%, showing great promise for practical application. We expect the successful synthesis of the “ideal” perovskite QDs will exert profound influence on their applications to both QD-based light-harvesting and -emitting devices in the near future.
