Fundamental studies of the adsorption of cadmium selenide quantum dots to surfactant-functionalized titania films
Our research group studies the adsorption of semiconductor quantum dots to self-assembled monolayers on metal oxide films and the interfacial electron transfer reactivity of these materials. This thesis will focus on ...
Investigating the fate and transport behavior of cadmium selenide quantum dots and transition metal oxide nanoparticles in aquatic and soil environments
The advancements in nanomaterials research have indeed brought about promising and exciting technologies. These new materials are bound to enter the aquatic and soil environments with commercialization and widespread use. ...
Luminescent silicon quantum dots as a base for multimodal nanoplatforms
Since the first reports of their use in biological contexts, QDs have confirmed their potential in biomedical application. QDs can potentially replace organic dyes in most biological applications because of their superior ...
The optical Aharonov-Bohm effect and magneto-optical properties in type-II quantum dots
We present a detailed experimental study of the magneto-optical properties of type-II quantum dots (QDs) in: (1) ZnTe/ZnSe superlattices grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE)—these Zn(SeTe) QDs evolve from Te-clustering ...
