Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals having 1-dimensional quantum confinement and methods of making the same

by Peng, Xiaogang; Li, Zheng

Describe a nanocrystal that comprised of a semiconductor material MX, wherein M is a group II or a group III element and X is a group V or a group VI element to provide a II/VI compound or a III/V compound. The nanocrystal having lateral dimensions and a vertical dimension having the shortest axis, wherein surfaces of the nanocrystal normal or substantially normal to the axis of the vertical dimension comprise a layer of M ions passivated by a counter ion chemical species.
