Landolt-Börnstein - Group III Condensed Matter

ZnSe, HgS, CdS, (Zn,Cd)S, (Zn,Mn)S, ZnS, CdO, ZnO quantum dots-nanocrystals

Abstract

This chapter discusses preparation methods and optical properties of ZnSe, HgS, CdS, (Zn,Cd)S, (Zn,Mn)S, ZnS, CdO, ZnO nanocrystals. The optical properties of confined energy states are analyzed by changing external parameters, such as temperature, pressure, electrical or magnetic fields or varying internal dot properties, like radius, matrix or dopants in low-density, intermediate-density and high-density regime. Dot-dot interactions, quantum dot arrays, coherent dynamics, relaxation and recombination of optical excitations are explained for the nanocrystals.
