by Peng, Xiaogang; Li, Jianqing; Battaglia, David; Wang, Y. Andrew; Wang, Yunjun

This invention provides new compositions containing nearly monodisperse colloidal core/shell semiconductor nanocrystals with high photoluminescence quantum yields, as well as other complex structured semiconductor nanocrystals. It also provides new synthetic methods for preparing these nanocrystals, and new devices comprising these compositions. In addition to core/shell semiconductor nanocrystals, it also provides complex semiconductor nanostructures, quantum shells, quantum wells, doped nanocrystals, and other multiple-shelled semiconductor nanocrystals.
