Research Abstract:
Current synthetic techniques to high-quality quantum dots (QDs) involveorganometallic precursors that are hazardous and expensive and require they be rapidly injected into an extremely hot solvent to form the QDs. A new method for synthesizing high-quality CdSe QDs while circumventing these more info
