Highly Luminescent Inverted ZnS/CdS Core/Shell Quantum Dots
Abstract:Synthesis of highly luminescent and monochromatic inverted core–shell structures utilizing ZnS/CdS quantum dots (QDs) has been investigated. The core/shell quantum dots have been characterized using grazing angle X-ray diffraction (XRD), Transmission electron microscopy, Optical absorption and luminescence spectroscopy. The results suggested that passivation of surface states along with an increased localization of electron and hole in CdS shell layer, give rise to increased monochromaticity with higher quantum yield. The possibility of using the inverted core–shell structure as an additional parameter for tuning the color of luminescence has also been discussed.
