Tuning Semiconducting and Metallic Quantrum Dots : Spectroscopy and Dynamics (Hardcover) (Christian Von
About this item
Nanotechnology opens new horizons for tuning optical properties. This book introduces basic tuning schemes, including those on a single particle level, with emphasis on surface and interface manipulation of quantum dots and nanostructures. There are two opponent demands in current forefront applications of quantum dots as optical labels, namely high-luminescence stability and controllable intermittency and bleaching on a single particle level to facilitate superresolution optical microscopy, which has been awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. In this book, these contradictory demands will be discussed.
