Optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures: decoherence versus quantum control

Optical spectroscopy and quantum control of semiconductor quantum dots has become a vivid field of research. The recent progress in both theory and experiment is reviewed, with emphasis on

Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy of Semiconductor Quantum Dots and Nanocrystals

Quantum dots (QDs) and nanocrystals (NCs) have attracted great attention for applications in nano- and opto-electronics, quantum computation, biosensing, and nanomedicine. Three-dimensional

Quantum dots in photonic dots

A micrometer-sized spherical microcavity, the photonic dot, is made from semiconductor nanocrystals, the quantum dots. The coupling of electronic and photonic states is demonstrated for a single

Spin-polarised carriers in CdS quasi-spherical quantum dots

The properties of spin-polarised carriers in quasi-spherical CdS quantum dots in a strong confinement regime were investigated by photoluminescence and pump-probe experiments. The obtained results

Self-assembled bioinspired quantum dots: Optical properties

Until now, the wide research field of quantum dots (QDs) focused on inorganic structures. In the present study, we report on quantum confinement phenomena found in peptide nanocrystalline regions

Observation of confinement-dependent exciton binding energy of GaN quantum dots

The photoluminescence emission peak energy of GaN quantum dots was observed to shift to higher energy with decreasing quantum dot size. This effect was found to be a combination of a blueshift from

Surface-Related Emission in Highly Luminescent CdSe Quantum Dots

We report our experimental studies of surface-related emission in highly luminescent CdSe quantum dots (QDs) with controlled quantum yield and photooxidation by time-resolved photoluminescence
