Although poorly understood, cation-exchange reactions are increasingly used to dope or transform colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots). We use density-functional theory and kinetic Monte Carlo simulations to develop a microscopic theory that explains structural, optical, and electronic changes observed experimentally in Ag-cation-exchanged CdSe nanocrystals. We find that Coulomb interactions, both between ionized impurities and with the polarized nanocrystal surface, play a key… Expand
Exciton dynamics in cation-exchanged CdSe/PbSe nanorods: The role of defects
Abstract Cation exchange occurs via defect initiated solid-state diffusion, a process that can lead to defect formations. The effect of such inherent defect formation on carrier dynamics ofExpand
Ion Exchange Transformation of Magic-Sized Clusters
Ultrasmall semiconductor clusters are exciting materials because of their molecularly precise structures and their unique optical spectra. “Magic-sized” CdSe clusters are transformed into their Cu2SeExpand
Forging Colloidal Nanostructures via Cation Exchange Reactions
TLDR
This review provides an up to date overview of the complex colloidal nanostructures that could be prepared so far by cation exchange and gives an account of the fundamental thermodynamic and kinetic parameters governing these types of reactions as they are currently understood. Expand
Controlling Charge Carrier Overlap in Type-II ZnSe/ZnS/CdS Core-Barrier-Shell Quantum Dots.
We describe the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of colloidal ZnSe/ZnS/CdS nanocrystals, which exhibit a type-II electronic structure and wave function overlap that is strongly dependentExpand
Cation Exchange Induced Transformation of InP Magic-Sized Clusters
Magic-sized clusters (MSCs) can provide valuable insight into the atomically precise progression of semiconductor nanocrystal transformations. We report the conversion of an InP MSC to a Cd3P2 MSCExpand
Cu Vacancies Boost Cation Exchange Reactions in Copper Selenide Nanocrystals
TLDR
It is found that the presence of a large density of copper vacancies significantly accelerated the exchange process at room temperature and corroborated vacancy diffusion as one of the main drivers in these reactions. Expand
Facile In situ Synthesis of Ag-Doped CdSe Supra-Quantum Dots and their Characterization.
TLDR
The facile in-situ synthesis of colloidal Ag-doped CdSe SQDs is reported, which shows that Ag dopants were efficiently incorporated into Cd Se SQDs through the three-dimensional interconnection of Ag- doped primary Cd se QDs, as confirmed by elemental analysis combined with chemical etching. Expand
Formation of ZnSe/Bi2Se3 QDs by surface cation exchange and high photothermal conversion
Water-dispersed core/shell structure ZnSe/Bi2Se3 quantum dots were synthesized by ultrasonicwave-assisted cation exchange reaction. Only surface Zn ion can be replaced by Bi ion in ZnSe quantum dots,Expand
Aliovalent Doping in Colloidal Quantum Dots and Its Manifestation on Their Optical Properties: Surface Attachment versus Structural Incorporation
Doping colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) with aliovalent cations is a promising, yet underexplored, approach to control the optoelectronic properties in CQDs. In CQD doping, kinetics determine whether aExpand
Heat-induced transformation of CdSe-CdS-ZnS core-multishell quantum dots by Zn diffusion into inner layers.
TLDR
In this work, thermal evolution of CdSe-CdS-ZnS core-multishell quantum dots (QDs) in situ using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) shows that Zn diffusion into inner layers takes place together with simultaneous evaporation of particularly Cd and S. Expand
