Colloidal lead chalcogenide (IV-VI) quantum dots and rods are of widespread scientific and technological interest, owing to their size tunable energy band gap at the near-infrared optical regime. This article reviews the development and investigation of IV-VI derivatives, consisting of a core (dot or rod) coated with an epitaxial shell, when either the core(More)
Lead-based (IV–VI) colloidal quantum dots (QDs) are of widespread scientific and technological interest owing to their size-tunable band-gap energy in the near-infrared optical region. This article reviews the synthesis of PbSe-based heterostructures and their structural and optical investigations at various temperatures. The review focuses on the(More)
Above band-edge photoexcitation of PbSe nanocrystals induces strong below band gap absorption as well as a multiphased buildup of bleaching in the 1Se1Sh transition. The amplitudes and kinetics of these features deviate from expectations based on biexciton shifts and state filling, which are the mechanisms usually evoked to explain them. To clarify these(More)
Using direct multiexcitonic spectroscopy, we experimentally observe for the first time the non-Poissonian formation of multiple excitons by femtosecond nonresonant two-photon absorption process in semiconductor colloidal quantum dots (QDs). Each of the multiple excitons is individually generated via the absorption of a pair of photons during the femtosecond(More)
The title compound, C(21)H(16)N(2), has been known since 1877. Although the crystal structure of 36 derivatives of lophine are known, the structure of parent compound has remained unknown until now. The three phenyl rings bonded to the imidazole core are not coplanar with the latter, with dihedral angles of 21.4 (3), 24.7 (3), and 39.0 (3)°, respectively,(More)
Controlling the synthesis of narrow band gap semiconductor nanocrystals (NCs) with a high-quality surface is of prime importance for scientific and technological interests. This Letter presents facile solution-phase syntheses of SnTe NCs and their corresponding core/shell heterostructures. Here, we synthesized monodisperse and highly crystalline SnTe NCs by(More)
The lophine derivative 2-(2-nitrophenyl)-4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazole, C21H15N3O2, (I), crystallized from ethanol as a solvent-free crystal and from acetonitrile as the monosolvate, C21H15N3O2.C2H3N, (II). Crystallization of 2-(4-nitrophenyl)-4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazole from methanol yielded the methanol monosolvate, C21H15N3O2.CH4O, (III). Three lophine(More)
Lead chalcogenide colloidal quantum dots are attractive candidates for applications operating in the near infrared spectral range. However, their function is forestalled by limited stability under ambient conditions. Prolonged temperature-activated cation-exchange of Cd(2+) for Pb(2+) forms PbSe/CdSe core/shell heterostructures, unveiling a promising(More)
