Luminescence from ZAIS quantum dots: radiative or nonradiative

  title={Luminescence from ZAIS quantum dots: radiative or nonradiative},
  author={Yasaman Moradi and Rene Zeto and Andrea M. Armani},
Quantum dots have found applications across the semiconductor and biotechnology industries, improving energy efficiency, color purity, and imaging capability. However, the standard quantum dot relies on a heavy metal architecture, which has undesirable environmental impacts. Thus, alternative material systems are desirable. One strategy is the ZnS-AgInS2 (ZAIS) quantum dot which has a metal dichalcogenide chemical structure. Unlike heavy metal quantum dots, these nanoparticles luminesce even…

Tuning the composition of heavy metal-free quaternary quantum dots for improved photoelectrochemical performance

Colloidal quantum dots (QDs) are promising building blocks towards the development of cost-effective and high-efficiency photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells. Unfortunately, the frequent use of QDs

Thick-Shell CuInS2/ZnS Quantum Dots with Suppressed "Blinking" and Narrow Single-Particle Emission Line Widths.

Single-particle measurements on a new type of CuInS2 (CIS) QDs with an especially thick ZnS shell show a greatly enhanced photostability compared to core-only or thin-shell samples and, importantly, exhibit a strongly suppressed PL blinking at the single-dot level.

Compound Copper Chalcogenide Nanocrystals.

This review captures the synthesis, assembly, properties, and applications of copper chalcogenide NCs, which have achieved significant research interest in the last decade due to their compositional

Highly efficient large-area colourless luminescent solar concentrators using heavy-metal-free colloidal quantum dots.

Luminescent solar concentrators serving as semitransparent photovoltaic windows could become an important element in net zero energy consumption buildings of the future. Colloidal quantum dots are

Cadmium selenide quantum wires and the transition from 3D to 2D confinement.

Spectroscopically determined wire band gaps compare closely to those calculated by the semiemipirical pseudopotential method, confirming 2D quantum confinement and suggesting that a length of ca.

Synthesis and characterization of green Zn-Ag-In-S and red Zn-Cu-In-S quantum dots for ultrahigh color quality of down-converted white LEDs.

This demonstrates the practical realization of white down-converted light-emitting diodes (DC-LEDs), fully covering the whole visible wavelength range and the cyan gap, using two broad fwhm green ZAIS and red ZCIS QDs.

Biocompatible Semiconductor Quantum Dots as Cancer Imaging Agents

Approximately 1.7 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed this year in the United States leading to 600 000 deaths. Patient survival rates are highly correlated with the stage of cancer
