A research study group led byProf JIN Shengye from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics ( DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences exposed an ultrafast and high-yield polaronic exciton dissociation system in two-dimensional (2D) perovskites.

This research study was released in Journal of the American Chemical Society on November 3,2021

2D perovskites are a class of naturally formed quantum well (QW) products. The exciton binding energy in 2D perovskite is much bigger (approximately numerous meV) than that in their 3D equivalents due to strong quantum and dielectric confinement.

Therefore, it is typically thought that the photogenerated charge providers in 2D perovskites generally exist in the kind of excitons, which are tough to dissociate into complimentary providers at space temperature level.

In this research study, by utilizing femtosecond photoluminescence up-conversion (PL-UC) and short-term absorption (TA) spectroscopy, the scientists for the very first time straight and dynamically observed the ultrafast (< < 1.4 ps) and extremely effective (> > 80%) exciton dissociation in 2D perovskites (n ≥ 2). This validated that free-carriers were the dominant provider types in 2D perovskites under space temperature level, which disputes with previous idea.

Moreover, they proposed a polaron-induced exciton dissociation system, where the exciton-polarons were easily formed by strong exciton-phonon coupling as in 3D perovskites, and the polaronic screening result caused a popular decrease in binding energy for effective exciton dissociation.

The scientists showed that the exciton dissociation into free-carriers was a significant element restricting the photoluminescence quantum yield of 2D perovskites by presenting extra nonradiative provider loss.

“This work reveals a common exciton dissociation property in this class of 2D materials and provides a guideline for the design and rational utilization of 2D perovskites in optical and optoelectronic applications,” statedProf JIN.
