An approach toward truly monosized nanocrystals based on amechanism of the chemical potential well during crystal growth is presented. Nanocrystals are first grown to sizes corresponding to stable crystallographic configurations in a lower energy state, for example, the magic closed-shell structure. Second, the nanocrystals are treated by a quenching process to suspend the crystal growth, which can place the nanocrystals in the chemical potential well generated by the stable magic closed-shell… CONTINUE READING
