The use of a combination of tunneling and optical spectroscopy to investigate the size and shape-dependent level structure and single-electron charging phenomena in semiconductor nanocrystals is reviewed. The artificial atom character of semiconductor nanocrystal quantum dots is manifested in both the discrete level structure and in the charging multiplicity of the single-electron tunneling data, revealing s and p atomic-like states. Such states can be directly imaged using scanning tunneling… CONTINUE READING
