Metal halide perovskites are emerging as promising optoelectronic materials with advantages like easy solution-based fabrication, low material cost, high defect tolerance, and high PLQY. Our group has been focusing on perovskite LEDs for years. In 2018, we prepared a quasi-core-shell structure of CsPbBry@CHaNHgBr, passivated the non-radiative defects, improved charge injection balance, and achieved a milestone EQE of over 20%. In 2021, we utilized the TFPPO to tune the crystalline dimension of 2D/3D perovskite, reducing the defect formation and significantly improving the PLQY. As a result, we got an impressive EQE of over 25%. Moreover, we will introduce some progress about manipulating crystal growth, regulating phase composition, optimizing device structure, and lead-free perovskite-based LEDs. As for the perovskite solar cells (PSCs), we have been focused on preparing ultra-pure FAPblg active layer, synthesis of functional fullerene and the application in PCs, perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells. Recently, we successfully boosted the power conversion efficiency to over 25 % with an operational lifetime of over 1,500 h.
