We present an overview of the current progress in the understanding of the (steady state) optical properties of individual II-VI semiconductor nanocrystals. We begin with a presentation of the conceptual development of the theory required to model the electronic structure of these systems. This is followed by an overview of the current experimental results obtained from the spectroscopy of individual semiconductor nanocrystals, and in particular, we focus on the study of photoluminescence… CONTINUE READING
