In 2014 we observed white-light emission from the inorganic sheets of layered lead-halide perovskites (1). Upon UV excitation, these bulk crystalline solids emit light that spans the entire visible spectrum, similar to sunlight. These hybrid phosphors have high color rendering indices and easily tunable chromaticity coordinates. They are promising as phosphors for solid-state lighting, especially as neat large-area coatings. Recently, a number of other white-light-emitting perovskites and closely related materials have been reported, making this a burgeoning field of study (2). However, the
vast majority of layered perovskites display a narrow blue/green emission, and white-light emission remains rare, leading to the question: "what is special about the white-light emitters"? Over the past few years, we have investigated the generality of obtaining broad photoluminescence from low-dimensional metal-halide lattices (3-5). I will present our current understanding of the white-light emission mechanism, which can be applied to many other low-dimensional systems.
