quantum dot

n.
1. A semiconductor nanostructure in which the excitons are constrained in all three spatial dimensions.
2. Any of various semiconductor nanocrystals that absorb white light and then reemit it a couple of nanoseconds later in a specific color, used as probes for tracking antibodies, viruses, proteins, or DNA in cells and organisms.

The CdS nanocrystallites are seen to be randomly dispersed with nanocrystalline CdS inclusion in the PVDF matrix (inset of Fig.
This latter statement is well established since it is highly unlikely that such a large amount of separated single or clustered nanocrystallites would have exclusively assembled on the GO platelet only because of the loss of the solvent.
[194, 195] reported that the presence of metal carbides nanocrystallites in amorphous matrix exhibits the low-friction behavior within a wide load range.

This work focuses on finding the thermal and time evolution parameters of MIC in the interfacial system [alpha]-Si/Sn, evaluating the role of photoionization processes in Si nanocrystallites formation, and exploring possible advantages of employing a pulsed laser radiation to control the nanocrystals' size and partial volume during Sn-induced crystallization of [alpha]-Si.

This can be correlated to the relatively smaller nanocrystallites structure obtained in the basic medium than those prepared in the acidic medium [47].
