Cesium lead halide (CsPbX3) nanocrystals have emerged as a new family of semiconductor nanomaterials that can outperform existing semiconductor nanocrystals owing to their superb optical and charge transport properties. Although these materials are expected to have many superior properties, control of the quantum confinement and isoelectronic magnetic doping, which can greatly enhance their optical, electronic, and magnetic properties, has faced significant challenges. These obstacles have hindered full utilization of the benefits that can be obtained by using CsPbX3 nanocrystals exhibiting strong quantum confinement or coupling between exciton and magnetic dopants, which have been extensively explored in many other semiconductor quantum dots. Here, we review progress made during the past several years in tackling the issues of introducing controllable quantum confinement and doping of Mn2+ ions as the prototypical magnetic dopant in colloidal CsPbX3 nanocrystals.
