A summary of the article is shown below:

Herein, an insulating biopolymer is exploited to guide the controlled formation of micro/nano-structure and physical confinement of α-δ mixed phase crystalline grains of formamidinium lead iodide (FAPbI3) perovskite, functioning as charge carrier concentrators and ensuring improved radiative recombination and photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY). This composite material is used to build highly efficient near-infrared (NIR) FAPbI3 Perovskite light-emitting diodes (PeLEDs) that exhibit a high radiance of 206.7 W/sr*m2, among the highest reported for NIR-PeLEDs, obtained at a very high current density of 1000 mA/cm2, while importantly avoiding the efficiency roll-off effect. In depth photophysical characterization allows to identify the possible role of the biopolymer in i) enhancing the radiative recombination coefficient, improving light extraction by reducing the refractive index, or ii) enhancing the effective optical absorption because of dielectric scattering at the polymer-perovskite interfaces. Our study reveals how the use of insulating matrixes for the growth of perovskites represents a step towards high power applications of PeLEDs.
