The absolute positions of the energy levels of colloidal quantum dots of Hg(S, Se, Te), which are of interest as mid-infrared materials, are determined by electrochemistry. The bulk valence bands are at -5.85, -5.50, and -4.77 eV (±0.05 eV) for zinc-blend HgS, HgSe, HgTe, respectively, in the same order as the anions p-orbital energies. The conduction bands… (More)
Nonaggregating HgTe colloidal quantum dots are synthesized without thiols as stabilizing ligands. The dots are spherical with a size tunability from 4.8 to 11.5 nm. When the results from optical and electrochemical measurement are combined, air-stable n-doping is observed in large sizes of HgTe quantum dots, which is attributed to the Hg-rich surface.
