Fabricating CsPbX3-based heterostructure has proven to be a feasible way to tune their photophysical properties. Here, we report the successful fabrication of Janus CsPbX3/ZrO2 heterostructure nanocrystals (NCs), in which each CsPbX3 NC is partially covered by ZrO2. According to the band alignment, CsPbBr3/ZrO2 and CsPbI3/ZrO2 can be indexed as type I and type II composites, respectively. The type I composites display great enhancement in photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY, from 63% to 90%) and PL lifetime (from 12.9 ns to 66.1 ns) because of the charge carrier confinement and passivation effect provided by ZrO2. In contrast, the Type II composites can be used in photocatalytic reduction of CO2 because electrons and holes are effectively separated and accumulated in ZrO2 and CsPbI3, respectively, under irradiation. Janus CsPbBr3/ZrO2 NCs showed much higher stability than pristine CsPbBr3 against polar solvents treatment. A stable and highly efficient light emitting device with luminous efficiency up to 55 lm W-1 is fabricated by using CsPbBr3/ZrO2 NCs as the green light source. This work may not only enrich the family of surface passivated perovskite materials, but also provide a good example for the rational design of specific composite in the metal halide perovskite field.

Adaptive antiviral defense mechanisms, in archaea and bacteria, based on DNA repeat arrays called CLUSTERED REGULARLY INTERSPACED SHORT PALINDROMIC REPEATS (CRISPR elements) that function in conjunction with CRISPR-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS (Cas proteins). Several types have been distinguished, including Type I, Type II, and Type III, based on signature motifs of CRISPR-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS.
A genus of the family RETROVIRIDAE consisting of viruses with either type B or type D morphology. This includes a few exogenous, vertically transmitted and endogenous viruses of mice (type B) and some primate and sheep viruses (type D). MAMMARY TUMOR VIRUS, MOUSE is the type species.
A group of recessively inherited diseases that feature progressive muscular atrophy and hypotonia. They are classified as type I (Werdnig-Hoffman disease), type II (intermediate form), and type III (Kugelberg-Welander disease). Type I is fatal in infancy, type II has a late infantile onset and is associated with survival into the second or third decade. Type III has its onset in childhood, and is slowly progressive.

Long-lasting voltage-gated CALCIUM CHANNELS found in both excitable and nonexcitable tissue. They are responsible for normal myocardial and vascular smooth muscle contractility. Five subunits (alpha-1, alpha-2, beta, gamma, and delta) make up the L-type channel. The alpha-1 subunit is the binding site for calcium-based antagonists. Dihydropyridine-based calcium antagonists are used as markers for these binding sites.
A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .
