Determination of the Electronic Energy Levels of Colloidal Nanocrystals using Field-Effect Transistors and Ab-Initio Calculations
Sprache des Titels:
Colloidal nanocrystals electronic energy levels are determined by strong size-dependent quantum confinement. Understanding the configuration of the energy levels of nanocrystal superlattices is vital in order to use them in heterostructures with other materials. A powerful method is reported to determine the energy levels of PbS nanocrystal assemblies by combining the utilization of electric-double-layer-gated transistors and advanced ab-initio theory.
