Resumo

Cesium lead halide perovskite quantum dots (PQDs) have emerged as a promising new platform for lighting applications. However, to date, light emitting diodes (LED) based on these materials exhibit limited efficiencies. One hypothesized limiting factor is fast nonradiative multiexciton Auger recombination. Using ultrafast spectroscopic techniques, we investigate multicarrier interaction and recombination mechanisms in cesium lead halide PQDs. By mapping the dependence of the biexciton Auger lifetime and the biexciton binding energy on nanomaterial size and composition, we find unusually strong Coulomb interactions among multiexcitons in PQDs. This results in weakly emissive biexcitons and trions, and accounts for low light emission efficiencies. We observe that, for strong confinement, the biexciton lifetime depends linearly on the PQD volume. This dependence becomes sublinear in the weak confinement regime as the PQD size increases beyond the Bohr radius. We demonstrate that Auger recombination is faster in PQDs compared to CdSe nanoparticles having the same volume, suggesting a stronger Coulombic interaction in the PQDs. We confirm this by demonstrating an increased biexciton binding energy, which reaches a maximum of about 100 meV, fully three times larger than in CdSe quantum dots. The biexciton shift can lead to low-threshold optical gain in these materials. These findings also suggest that materials engineering to reduce Coulombic interaction in cesium lead halide PQDs could improve prospects for high efficiency optoelectronic devices. Core-shell structures, in particular type-II nanostructures, which are known to reduce the bandedge Coulomb interaction in CdSe/CdS, could beneficially be applied to PQDs with the goal of increasing their potential in lighting applications.
