Halide perovskite nanomaterials have recently attracted a lot of attention in the nanoscale laser research field, especially two-photon pumped lasing in halide perovskite nanomaterials has been considered as an ideal alternative strategy to achieve frequency upconversion. However, the poor stability of current organic–inorganic lead halide perovskite materials hinder their further practical applications. Herein, facile solution-processed cesium lead halide perovskite CsPbX3 (X = Br, I, or Cl) microcubes with low-threshold lasing, high quality, enhanced stability, and excellent wavelength tunability are reported. These as-prepared CsPbX3 microcubes display excellent structure stability under ambient conditions for several months and they are found to be more robust than their organic–inorganic counterparts. The smooth end facets and wavelength-comparable dimensions make these microcubes promising for high-quality laser cavities in three dimensions. Fabry–Perot lasing is demonstrated in CsPbX3 microcubes, the process of which is investigated by dynamic emission. In addition, tunable amplified spontaneous emission is achieved with low threshold under both one- and two-photon excitation, which can maintain a stable emission for over 10 hours under continuous intense laser shots in ambient atmosphere. The findings suggest that solution-processed all-inorganic perovskite microcubes can be used as excellent gain medium for frequency upconversion lasers, which would offer a new platform for nonlinear photoelectric devices. Perovskite microcubes with smooth end facets, superior crystallization behavior, enhanced stability and tunable optical properties are reported. These microcubes exhibit surprisingly low-threshold amplified spontaneous emission under both one- and two-photon excitation, which should generate significant end-facet reflectivity. The microcubes act as both the gain medium and laser cavity in three dimensions and hold good promise for future lasing applications.
