Due to their high potentiality for photovoltaic applications or coherent light sources, a renewed interest in hybrid organic perovskites (HOPs) has emerged since 2012. HOPs can be arranged in such a way that carriers are free to move at 3D or at 2D. At 3D, the exciton binding energy has been shown to be of the order of tenth of meV. When they are arranged in two dimensions, these materials can be considered as hybrid multi-quantum wells [1], that lead to strong light-matter coupling regime when they are embedded in an optical microcavity [2-9]. Moreover, both quantum and dielectric confinement lead to a huge exciton binding energy of several hundreds of meV [1].

In this talk, we will focus on the excitonic properties of 2D HOP. In particular, we will report on ultrafast pump-probe experiments performed on (C6H5C2H4NH3)2PbI4 thin layers at room temperature [10]. The exciton dynamics is fitted with a bi-exponential decay with a free exciton life-time of ∼100 ps. The presence of a long tail in the pump/probe signal is attributed to trapped excitons on dark states, while an ultrafast intraband relaxation (tintra ≤ 150 fs) is reported. The analysis of the transient broadening and loss of oscillator strength demonstrates that 2D-HOPs share common behaviours with standard semiconductors quantum wells despite their huge exciton binding energy that is closer to the one reported for organic semiconductors.
