Thin films of two-dimensional layered perovskite compounds (RNH3)2(CH3NH3)m-1 PbmX3m+1(X = Cl, Br and I; m = 1 - 3), which have multilayer quantum wells, were systematically prepared. X-ray diffraction patterns demonstrated that the control of the inorganic layer thickness was achieved in all the halogen systems. These layered perovskite films showed a strong, clear exciton absorption peak. The exciton peak shifted to lower energy as the halogen in the structure was changed from Cl, Br to I. This is due to the difference in the band gap energy. Moreover, with the increasing numbers of inorganic layers, a red shift in the exciton peak was observed.
