In this study, a highly stretchable white-light electroluminescent device is fabricated using chemically designed perovskite nanocrystals (NCs). To incorporate perovskite into a stretchable polymer matrix without any degradation, gel-type silica-coated CsPbBr3 and CsPbBrxI3-x NC inks are prepared using (3-aminopropyl) triethoxysilane (APTES) with a sacrificial solvent of hexane. The chemical, optical, and structural properties of powdered and gel-type perovskite NCs with and without APTES are investigated. Silica shell with APTES treatment improves the stability of perovskite NCs, and gel-type inks improve the dispersivity in the polymer matrix. These enable the fabrication of stretchable and luminescent NC/polymer matrices with enhanced and uniform luminescence properties. By utilizing these materials, we propose a stretchable electroluminescent device emitting strong white light that is close to the ideal white position in Commission Internationale de l'éclairage (CIE) with optical simulation. Herein, we fabricate a multi-color filter with high color reproducibility on stretchable blue electroluminescent devices for white-light generation. Furthermore, all-solution-processed, color-filterless, stretchable, white-light electroluminescence devices with excellent optical and mechanical properties are fabricated.
