报告摘要:

The emission of lead-halide perovskite nanocrystals (NCs) is mostly in the visible spectral range. By doping perovskite NCs with lanthanides, their emission can be extended into the near-infrared (NIR) spectral region. Particularly, Yb3+-doped CsPbClxBr3-x NCs exhibited strong NIR emission centered around 1 ?m. To date, development of Yb3+-doped perovskite NCs included novel synthetic approaches, applications in solar harvesting, light detection and light-emitting devices. However, a deeper understanding of the fundamental processes governing the photoexcitation dynamics in these nanostructures is required for their rational design. Besides, the search for the new concept is beneficial for their broader application.

First, we shed light on the photoexcitation dynamics in Yb3+-doped CsPbClxBr3?x perovskite NCs with different stoichiometries by investigating the temperature dependence of their PL properties. We developed a model in which the sensitization of Yb3+ ions occurs via intermediate trap states in the host matrix of CsPbClxBr3?x NCs. The band gap of the NCs determines the energy gap between these trap states and the conduction band of the matrix, controlling the population of the trap states and the efficiency of energy transfer to Yb3+ ions. This mechanism, combined with the inherent temperature dependence of radiative recombination rates, explains the observed temperature-dependent PL properties of the Yb3+:CsPbClxBr3?x NCs. The proposed model also explains the observed reduction of the NIR PL quantum yield upon gradual Cl-to-Br anion exchange and the absence of saturation of the NIR PL intensity in Yb3+:CsPbClxBr3?x NCs at high excitation powers.

Next, we proposed that Yb3+-doped CsPbClxBr3-x NCs can serve as versatile and efficient dual-band luminescent materials operating under two-photon NIR excitation, with excitation and emission occurring in the 1st and 2nd NIR optical windows, respectively. The gradual anion exchange (from Cl- to Br-) in these perovskite NCs is accompanied by a change of the bandgap resulting in a strong enhancement of their two-photon excited PL, with TPA cross-section reaching high value of 2.3×105 GM. NCs can be embedded into silica microspheres and then coated with biocompatible polymer PEG offering a protective amphiphilic shell. The PEG-coated microspheres containing Yb3+:CsPbClxBr3-x NCs could be easily dispersed either in toluene or in water and maintained their PL response under both one- and two-photon excitation, thus making them promising materials for biosensing, bioanalysis, and optical imaging of cells, viruses, and tissues.
