Perovskite materials have received extensive attention as optical gain media. However, it is tough to realize lasing using such materials on account of the unstable structure of MAPbI3/CsPbI3 nanocrystals (NCs), and the propensity for mixed-halogen perovskites to undergo phase decomposition into bromine-rich and iodide-rich regions under intense laser irradiation. To solve this issue, we fabricated CsPbX3 (X = Br, I) NCs, which were embedded into a glassy matrix with high stability. In addition, by doping Br ions into the CsPbI3 NCs to partially replace I ions, the optical efficiency and the optical gain properties were found to be significantly improved. Here, under 800 nm pulse laser excitation, red random lasing was realized with the assistance of such anion modulation. Moreover, we demonstrate that the perovskite NCs glasses (PNG) show strong water stability after immersion in water for one week, seeding a promise for application in high-definition (HD) displays and photonic devices.
