Perovskite semiconductors have been received great attention due to their potential application in photonic devices, such as laser, LED, solar cell. The perovskite solar cell conversion efficiency is reported up to about 22%. However, there is few reports on the investigation of the k.p band structure of cubic CsSnBr3 perovskite nanoplatelets. In this work, we extracted the band parameters from the first-principles calculation of the cubic CsSnBr3 perovskite. The Luttinger parameters γ1 =10.22, γ2 =4.32, and γ3=1.73 were obtained. Using the obtained parameters, we developed an 8-band k.p method to calculate the optical absorption spectrum of the cubic CsSnBr3 perovskite nanoplatelet with different layer thickness (4 to 8 MLs). The bulk inversion asymmetry was taken into consideration in our model. The energy splitting was observed at non-zero k point (k=0 is the R point). The exciton effect was included in the absorption spectrum simulation. The TE and TM mode exciton enhanced absorption spectrum of CsSnBr3 NPL at room temperature are simulated and obtained. The results could be useful to understand the perovskite based photonic devices.
