High-performance multiphoton-pumped lasers based on cesium lead halide perovskite nanostructures are promising for nonlinear optics and practical frequency upconversion devices in integrated photonics. However, the performance of such lasers is highly dependent on the quality of the material and cavity, which makes their fabrication challenging. Herein, we demonstrate that cesium lead halide perovskite triangular nanorods fabricated via vapor methods can serve as gain media and effective cavities for multiphoton-pumped lasers. We observed blue-shifts of the lasing modes in the excitation fluence-dependent lasing spectra at increased excitation powers, which fits well with the dynamics of Burstein–Moss shifts caused by the band filling effect. Moreover, efficient multiphoton lasing in CsPbBr3 nanorods can be realized in a wide excitation wavelength range (700–1,400 nm). The dynamics of multiphoton lasing were investigated by time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy, which indicated that an electron–hole plasma is responsible for the multiphoton-pumped lasing. This work could lead to new opportunities and applications for cesium lead halide perovskite nanostructures in frequency upconversion lasing devices and optical interconnect systems.
