Metal-halide perovskite light-emitting diodes (PeLEDs) have shown great advancement in green, red, and near-infrared regions with external quantum efficiencies (EQEs) exceeding 20%. However, blue PeLEDs, an essential part of displays and lightings, show limited progress compared to the other color counterparts. Herein, a highly efficient pure-blue PeLED is demonstrated by leveraging a novel CsPbBrxCl3-x/Cs4PbBrxCl6-x nanocomposite perovskite film as an emissive layer. The Cs4PbBrxCl6-x phase, the derived phase of CsPbBr3 perovskite with a mixed halide system, effectively passivates defects in CsPbBrxCl3-x, leading to high luminescence efficiency due to the significant reduction of nonradiative recombination. Furthermore, experimental and computational results confirmed that the compositionally optimized nanocomposite layer possesses a shallower valence band maximum (≈5.5 eV) than the pristine perovskite layer (≈5.9 eV), which is very advantageous in hole injection for device operation. The combined effects of the CsPbBrxCl3-x/Cs4PbBrxCl6-x nanocomposite render the fabricated blue PeLED to exhibit a pure-blue emission at 470 nm with a maximum EQE of 5.3%.
