Lead halide perovskite nanocrystals are an emerging class of materials that have gained wide interest due to their facile color tuning and high photoluminescence quantum yield. However, the lack of techniques to translate the high performance of nanocrystals into solid films restricts the successful exploitation of such materials in optoelectronics applications. Here, we report a heat-up and large-scale synthesis of quantum-confined, blue-emitting CsPbBr3 nanoplatelets (NPLs) that self-assemble into stacked lamellar structures. Spin-coated films fabricated from these NPLs show a stable blue emission with a photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY) of 25%. The morphology and the optoelectronic properties of such films can be dramatically modified by UV-light irradiation under ambient conditions at a high power, which transforms the self-assembled stacks of NPLs into much larger structures, such as square-shaped disks and nanobelts. The emission from the transformed thin films falls within the green spectral region with a record PLQY of 65%, and they manifest an amplified spontaneous emission with a sharp line width of 4 nm at full-width at half-maximum under femtosecond-pulsed excitation. The transformed films show stable photocurrents with a responsivity of up to 15 mA/W and response times of tens of milliseconds and are robust under treatment with different solvents. We exploit their insolubility in ethanol to fabricate green-emitting, all-solution-processed light-emitting diodes with an external quantum efficiency of 1.1% and a luminance of 590 Cd/m2.
