Quantum Dots: A Demonstration of Colloidal Synthesis - …

N2 - Synthetic progress has led to growth of monodisperse colloidal graphene quantum dots large enough that the lowest-energy electronic states can be understood in terms of confined Dirac fermions. Appropriate ligands inhibit aggregation and promote solubility that now permit optical studies of excitons and biexcitons formed of Dirac fermions in ensembles of individual quantum dots. Here we review recent progress in synthesis and understanding of the optical properties and dynamics of colloidal graphene quantum dots as well as related aspects of other nanoscale graphene structures and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. We highlight graphene quantum dots that are fully benzenoid and discuss challenges in studying colloidal graphene quantum dots with zigzag edges. Graphene quantum dot (C168) consisting of 168 sp2 hybridized C atoms. R indicates ligands.

Next, we developed methods to quantify the linear optical properties of the Qdots.

AB - Synthesis of quantum dots is a valuable experiment for demonstration and discussion of quantum phenomena in undergraduate chemistry curricula. Recently, a new class of all-inorganic perovskite quantum dots (QDs) with a formula of CsPbX3 (X = Cl, Br, I) was presented and attracted tremendous attention. Here we adapt the synthesis of CsPbX3 QDs for implementation in inorganic chemistry laboratory class. Perovskite QDs have a number of advantages: they exhibit bright photoluminescence in the visible range of spectrum with a narrow bandwidth, and their emission wavelength can be changed by tuning both size and composition of nanoparticles. The described experiment provides a discussion point on many important concepts of inorganic chemistry, materials science, and nanotechnology, such as colloidal synthesis of nanoparticles, perovskite crystal structure, quantum size effect, as well as photovoltaics and renewable energy.

AB - The fabrication techniques of quantum dots can be categorized into "top-down" methods using lithography and etching and "bottom-up" methods utilizing self-assembly. This chapter describes few of the infrared detector metrics. There are two types of quantum efficiency (QE): external QE (also sometimes called conversion efficiency) and internal QE. The high operating temperature capability of quantum dot infrared detectors (QDIPs) comes from two quantum dot-related effects: low dark current and high photoelectric gain. The chapter looks more closely at the Stranski-Krastanow (SK) growth mode, which is also referred to as quantum dot fabrication by self-assembly. mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) and low-WIR (LWIR) QDIPs based on the InAs/GaAs system have been reported by several groups. These QDIP structures were usually grown by self-assembled method via molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) technique. The synthesis of colloidal quantum dots (CQD) is based on a three-component system composed of precursors, organic surfactants, and solvents.
