We implement three complementary techniques to quantify the number, energy, and electronic properties of trap states in nanocrystal (NC)-based devices. We demonstrate that, for a given technique, the ability to observe traps depends on the Fermi level position, highlighting the importance of a multitechnique approach that probes trap coupling to both the(More)
Improving devices incorporating solution-processed nanocrystal-based semiconductors requires a better understanding of charge transport in these complex, inorganic-organic materials. Here we perform a systematic study on PbS nanocrystal-based diodes using temperature-dependent current-voltage characterization and thermal admittance spectroscopy to develop a(More)
We demonstrate current-based, deep level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) on semiconductor nanocrystal solids to obtain quantitative information on deep-lying trap states, which play an important role in the electronic transport properties of these novel solids and impact optoelectronic device performance. Here, we apply this purely electrical measurement to(More)
We report a simple, high-yield colloidal synthesis of copper indium selenide nanocrystals (CISe NCs) based on a silylamide-promoted approach. The silylamide anions increase the nucleation rate, which results in small-sized NCs exhibiting high luminescence and constant NC stoichiometry and crystal structure regardless of the NC size and shape. In particular,(More)
Indium tin oxide (ITO) nanopatterned electrodes are prepared from colloidal solutions as a material saving alternative to the industrial vapor phase deposition and top down processing. For that purpose highly monodisperse In(1-x)Sn(x) (x < 0.1) colloidal nanocrystals (NCs) are synthesized with accurate size and composition control. The outstanding(More)
Solids of semiconductor nanocrystals (NCs) are semiconductors in which the band gap can be controlled by changing the size of the constituent NCs. To date, nontrivial dependencies of the carrier mobility on the NC size have been reported. We use the time-of-flight (TOF) technique to measure the carrier mobility as a function of the NC size and find that the(More)
Engineering the compositional gradient for core/shell semiconductor nanocrystals improves their optical properties. To date, however, the structure of graded core/shell nanocrystal emitters has only been qualitatively described. In this paper, we demonstrate an approach to quantify nanocrystal structure, selecting graded Ag-In-Se/ZnSe core/shell(More)
Ternary I-III-VI nanocrystals, such as silver indium selenide (AISe), are candidates to replace cadmium- and lead-based chalcogenide nanocrystals as efficient emitters in the visible and near IR, but, due to challenges in controlling the reactivities of the group I and III cations during synthesis, full compositional and size-dependent behavior of I-III-VI(More)
Phonons and their interactions with other phonons, electrons or photons drive energy gain, loss and transport in materials. Although the phonon density of states has been measured and calculated in bulk crystalline semiconductors, phonons remain poorly understood in nanomaterials, despite the increasing prevalence of bottom-up fabrication of semiconductors(More)
We synthesize stable colloids of Cu-In-Te and Ag-In-Te nanocrystals using an amide-promoted technique, which enables independent size and composition control, and report the dependence of structural and optical properties on composition and size. Comparison to the synthesis of other ternary I-III-VI nanocrystals gives insight into the reaction mechanism and(More)
