Abstract

Hydrophobically capped nanocrystals of formamidinium lead bromide (FAPbBr3 ) perovskite (PNC) show bright and stable fluorescence in solution and thin-film states. When compared with isolated PNCs in a solution, close-packed PNCs in a thin film show extended fluorescence lifetime (ca. 4.2 μs), which is due to hopping or migration of photogenerated excitons among PNCs. Both fluorescence quantum efficiency and lifetime decrease in a PNC thin film doped with fullerene (C60 ), which is attributed to channeling of exciton migration into electron transfer to C60 . On the other hand, quenching of fluorescence intensity of a PNC solution is not accompanied by any change in fluorescence lifetime, indicating static electron transfer to C60 adsorbed onto the hydrophobic surface of individual PNCs. Exciton migration among close-packed PNCs and electron transfer to C60 places C60 -doped PNC thin films among cost-effective antenna systems for solar cells.
