Lasing in Robust Cesium Lead Halide Perovskite Nanowires


Scientific Achievement

Molecular Foundry users achieve stable, high performance lasing in perovskite-based cesium lead halide nanowires (NWs).

Significance and Impact

These NW lasers demonstrate improved stability compared to other perovskite-based NW lasers while offering comparable performance, facile synthesis, and lasing wavelength tunability.
