Request for Data- Band gap of CdSe quantum dots against size

  1. Jan 23, 2007 #1
    Would anybody be able to provide me with data concerning the band gap of colloidal CdSe quantum dots against their size?? I am currently using CdSe dots with a ZnS shell, capped with HDA. Any relevant information would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks,

    You might find something in the references from one of these:

    1. "Lateral Patterning of Luminescent CdSe Nanocrystals by Selective Dewetting from Self-Assembled Organic Templates", N. Lu, et al Nano Letters 4, 885 (2004)
