Download Cadmium Telluride Quantum Dots: Advances and Applications by John Donegan, Yury Rakovich PDF

By John Donegan, Yury Rakovich

In the final twenty years, semiconductor quantum dots—small colloidal nanoparticles—have garnered loads of medical curiosity as a result of their specified homes. between nanomaterials, CdTe holds distinct technological significance because the simply recognized II–VI fabric which may shape traditional p–n junctions. This makes CdTe extremely important for the advance of novel optoelectronic units resembling light-emitting diodes, sunlight cells, and lasers. in addition, the call for for water-compatible gentle emitters and the commonest organic buffers provide CdTe quantum dots fields a veritable part in biolabeling and bioimaging.

Cadmium Telluride Quantum Dots: Advances and Applications specializes in CdTe quantum dots and addresses their synthesis, meeting, optical houses, and purposes in biology and drugs. It makes for a truly informative examining for a person excited by nanotechnology and also will gain these scientists who're trying to find a finished account at the present kingdom of quantum dot–related research.
