The optical properties of the nanoscale neodymium ceramic cluster (THF) 8 Nd 8 O 2 Se 2 (SePh) 16 (Nd8) and molecular (DME) 2 Nd(SC 6 F 5) 3 (Nd1) were studied by optical absorption, photoluminescence, and time-resolved spectroscopy. Both complexes exhibited emission characteristic of solid-state materials The observed red-shift in the absorption and(More)
