Webinar: Emerging Quantum Dot Materials: Synthesis and Application

 What Does It Cover?

Quantum Dots (QDs) undoubtedly attracted lots of interest with their superior luminescent properties. What is distinct about their luminescent properties is that the wavelengths of emitted light can be precisely tuned by changing of nanoparticle size or composition. Quantum dots possess narrow full width at half maximum (FWHM), high photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY), emission wavelength tunability through the entire visible and near IR range. In this webinar, we talk about synthesis and application of emerging quantum dots materials: Perovskite and PbS QDs. Perovskite QDs emit light within the visible range, have high PLQY (up to 100 %), narrow FWHM (below 20-25 nm), and are considered as the best alternatives for CdSe and InP QDs for display application. PbS QDs emit light in near IR region with narrow FWHM of absorption and emission, making them ideal in NIR photodetectors and solar cells.
