A theoretical study of the positive and negative trion channels in the nonradiative Auger recombination of band-edge biexcitons (BXs) in CdSe/CdS core/shell nanocrystals (NCs) is presented. The theory takes into account the BX fine-structure produced by NC asymmetry and hole-hole exchange interaction. The calculations show that growth of CdS shell upon CdSe(More)
Conventional colloidal quantum dots (QDs) suffer from rapid energy losses by nonradiative (Auger) processes, leading to sub-ns lifetimes in all excited states but the lowest-energy single exciton. Suppression of interband Auger decay, such as biexciton Auger recombination, has been achieved with the design of heterostructured core-shell QDs. Auger-like(More)
We conduct spectroscopic and theoretical studies of photoluminescence (PL) from Ge quantum dots (QDs) fabricated via colloidal synthesis. The dynamics of late-time PL exhibit a pronounced dependence on temperature and applied magnetic field, which can be explained by radiative decay involving two closely spaced, slowly emitting exciton states. In 3.5 nm(More)
