Abstract

We study the low-temperature (T = 4.7 K) emission dynamics of a thin film of methylammonium lead bromide (MAPbBr3), prepared via the anti-solvent method. Using intensity-dependent (over 5 decades) hyperspectral microscopy under quasi-resonant (532 nm) continuous wave excitation, we revealed spatial inhomogeneities in the thin film emission. This was drastically different at the band-edge (∼550 nm, sharp peaks) than in the emission tail (∼568 nm, continuum of emission). We are able to observe regions of the film at the micrometer scale where emission is dominated by excitons, in between regions of trap emission. Varying the density of absorbed photons by the MAPbBr3 thin films, two-color fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy unraveled the emission dynamics: a fast, resolution-limited (∼200 ps) monoexponential tangled with a stretched exponential decay. We associate the first to the relaxation of excitons and the latter to trap emission dynamics. The obtained stretching exponents can be interpreted as the result of a two-dimensional electron diffusion process: Förster resonant transfer mechanism. Furthermore, the non-vanishing fast monoexponential component even in the tail of the MAPbBr3 emission indicates the subsistence of localized excitons. Finally, we estimate the density of traps in MAPbBr3 thin films prepared using the anti-solvent method at n∼1017 cm−3.
