Hybrid halide perovskites are proposed for next-generation photovoltaics and lighting technologies due to their remarkable optoelectronic properties. In this study, we demonstrate printed perovskite nanowires (NWs) for lasing and wide-gamut phosphor using a combination of inkjet printing and nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide (AAO). The random lasing behaviors of the resulting perovskite NWs are analyzed and discussed. Moreover, by varying the composition of Cl, Br, and I anions, we demonstrate tunable emission wavelengths of the perovskite NWs from 439 to 760 nm, with a large red-green-blue color space that extends to 117% of the color standard defined by the National Television Systems Committee (NTSC). Furthermore, we demonstrate passivation of the perovskite NWs against moisture due to their compact spatial confinement within the AAO template combined with a poly(methyl methacrylate) sealing process, resulting in highly stable emission intensity that degrades only 19% after continuous 250 h of 30 mW/cm2 UV excitation and degrades 30% after three months when stored in air at 50% humidity. This inkjet printing fabrication strategy involving AAO-confined perovskite NWs enables highly stable, large-area direct patterning and mass production of perovskite NWs, which is promising for modern lighting applications.
