Abstract:Type‐II core/shell quantum dots are characterized by a staggered alignment of conduction and valence bands (see Figure), giving rise to a broad tunability of absorption and emission wavelengths. Colloidal ZnTe/CdE (E = S, Se, Te) core/shell quantum dots have been prepared with emission quantum yields of up to 30 %. The synthesis route presented should be applicable to other type‐II core/shell quantum dots.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
