Quantum dots are tiny particles or Nanocrystals of a semiconducting material with diameters in the range of 2-10 nanometers (10-50 atoms).
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites have been used in optoelectronic devices including solar cells, photodetectors, light-emitting diodes and lasers, but the surface of hybrid perovskites is prone to surface defects, where charge carriers are trapped in the semiconducting material. To solve this problem, the crystal surface must be passivated.
