Linearly polarized light is important for a wide range of applications, such as 3D displays and optical communications. However, linear polarization is typically achieved by filtering unpolarized light, which leads to significant losses in energy. This talk examines the use of nanostructured lead-halide perovskites to directly achieve polarized light emission.<br/><br/>Although nanostructured halide perovskites have important advantages in terms of color purity and tunability, they are strongly affected by surface defects. Thus, the first half of this talk examines how the surface chemistry of CsPb(Br<sub>x</sub>I<sub>3-x</sub>) nanocrystals can be controlled through the polarity of the antisolvent used during purification. Through detailed nuclear magnetic resonance, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray photoemission spectroscopy measurements, we show that higher polarity antisolvents lead to increased selective etching of the iodide species due to the removal of the long-chain organic ligands through condensation reactions [1].<br/><br/>The second half of the talk discusses the use of self-assembled CsPbI<sub>3</sub> perovskite nanoplatelets to achieve polarized light emission. We show that the high dielectric and quantum confinement in these nanoplatelets leads to a large splitting in the exciton fine structure. In the edge-up perovskite nanoplatelet superlattices, we achieve strong emission from the out-of-plane dipole for the optically bright excitons. In light-emitting diodes, this led to a high degree of polarization in electroluminescence of 74.4% without requiring the use of any photonic structures [2].<br/><br/>[1] Ye, …, Hoye, J. Am. Chem.
