Perovskite nanocrystals have excellent optical properties but suffer from environmental instability and production up-scaling which limit their commercial application. Here, we report the gram-scale ultrasound-mediated synthesis of silane passivated CsPbBr3 nanocrystals using (3-aminopropyl) triethoxysilane (APTS) as the primary surface ligand surface. The surface engineering endowed the CsPbBr3@SiOR NCs with extended environmental stability, a narrow emission bandwidth and a high photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY > 75%). Thanks to these excellent optical properties, high-efficiency lateral and vertical photodetectors were fabricated. In particular, the layered vertical photodiode composed of ITO/Ga2O3/CsPbBr3/Au exhibited a broadband photoresponse from 350-700 nm with a responsivity peaking at 44.5.1 A W−1 and specific detectivity above 1013 Jones when illuminated at 470 nm wavelength and biased at +5 V. These results correspond to the best-in-class performance perovskite nanocrystal PD and confirm the extraordinary potential of CsPbBr3@SiOR for the development of efficient optoelectronic devices.
