We study spectrally resolved dynamics of Forster energy transfer in single monolayers and bilayers of semiconductor nanocrystal quantum dots assembled using Langmuir−Blodgett (LB) techniques. For a single monolayer, we observe a distribution of transfer times from ∼50 ps to ∼10 ns, which can be quantitatively modeled assuming that the energy transfer is dominated by interactions of a donor nanocrystal with acceptor nanocrystals from the first three “shells” surrounding the donor. We also detect…

Excitonic Energy Transfer within InP/ZnS Quantum Dot Langmuir–Blodgett Assemblies
The energy transfer induced exciton energy shift decreased significantly from 95 to 27 meV after multiple ZnS shell growth, and higher energy transfer was observed for the thin-shell InP/1ZnS QD monolayer.
Directed energy transfer in films of CdSe quantum dots: beyond the point dipole approximation.
The investigations of the FRET dynamics in densely packed films composed of multisized CdSe QDs using ultrafast transient absorption spectroscopy and theoretical modeling are reported and three ideal QD monolayers can provide exciton funneling efficiency above 80% from the most distant layer.
Energy Transfer of Biexcitons in a Single Semiconductor Nanocrystal.
A single-particle ET system is constructed by attaching several acceptor dyes to the surface of a donor NC to study the ET of biexcitons at a single-NC level and the average ET rate ratio was estimated to be larger than four, and the same scaling rule could be naturally extended to their radiative rates.
Photoluminescence Dynamics of CdSe QD/Polymer Langmuir–Blodgett Thin Films: Morphology Effects
Thin films of colloidal semiconductor CdSe quantum-dots (QDs) and a styrene/maleic anhydride copolymer were prepared by the Langmuir–Blodgett technique and their photoluminescence was characterized

Photoluminescence characteristics of coupled CdSe∕ZnS quantum dots on self-assembled silica nanospheres
The photoluminescence (PL) characteristics of the self-assembled silica nanospheres containing coupled CdSe∕ZnS core-shell quantum dots (QDs) on the surface of the sphere were studied. The degree of
Energy Transfer Sensitization of Luminescent Gold Nanoclusters: More than Just the Classical Förster Mechanism
Data suggests that AuNC sensitization is not by classical FRET or NSET and a simplified distance-independent ET model is provided to fit such experimental data.
Efficient radiative and nonradiative energy transfer from proximal CdSe/ZnS nanocrystals into silicon nanomembranes.
This demonstration supports the feasibility of an advanced thin-film hybrid solar cell concept that relies on energy transfer between strong light absorbers and adjacent high-mobility Si layers through combined effects of radiative (RET) and nonradiative (NRET) energy transfer from a proximal monolayer of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals.


Resonance Energy Transfer
Resonance energy transfer, also known as Forster- or fluorescence- resonance energy transfer, or electronic energy transfer, is a photonic process whose relevance in many major areas of science is
