The Optoelectronic Properties Of Surface-Modified Semiconductor Nanocrystal Solids, Earl D. Goodwin
Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations
Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals have emerged as fascinating new materials and gained interest in the last 30 years because of their size, shape, and compositionally tunable electronic and optical properties as well as their potential to serve as artificial atoms. Challenges and opportunities have arisen when assembling nanocrystals into nanocrystal solids for electronic and optoelectronic applications, largely because of the significant influence of nanocrystal surface chemistry on the electronic, optical, and structural properties of nanocrystal solids. In order to assemble nanocrystal solids for high performance devices, we must understand and be able to control the effects of nanocrystal surface organic capping ...
