Abstract

Water soluble CdSe(S)/ZnO core/shell quantum dots (QDs) were synthesized by an aqueous hydrothermal route. They have been characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (PXRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), UV-visible absorption and laser emission spectroscopy. The effects of the hydrothermal conditions and reaction time, in addition to the nature of the precursor, on the formation of the QDs were investigated.
