Composition-dependent fluorescence emission of ternary Cd-In-S alloyed quantum dots.
Summary of "Composition-dependent fluorescence emission of ternary Cd-In-S alloyed quantum dots."
This communication describes a new type of alloyed Cd-In-S quantum dots (CdIS QDs) with ultra small particle size and broadly tunable fluorescence emission from 450 to 700 nm. The band gap of CdIS QDs was mainly controlled by their composition rather than their particle size. The CdIS-ZnS core-shell nanocrystals exhibited significantly improved optical properties and chemical stabilities, with the PL quantum yield (QY) of up to 60%.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Nanometer sized fragments (the dots) of semiconductor crystalline material which emit PHOTONS. The wavelength is based on the quantum confinement size of the dot. They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.
Microscopy, Fluorescence, Multiphoton
Fluorescence microscopy utilizing multiple low-energy photons to produce the excitation event of the fluorophore. Multiphoton microscopes have a simplified optical path in the emission side due to the lack of an emission pinhole, which is necessary with normal confocal microscopes. Ultimately this allows spatial isolation of the excitation event, enabling deeper imaging into optically thick tissue, while restricting photobleaching and phototoxicity to the area being imaged.
Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer
A type of FLUORESCENCE SPECTROSCOPY using two FLUORESCENT DYES with overlapping emission and absorption spectra, which is used to indicate proximity of labeled molecules. This technique is useful for studying interactions of molecules and PROTEIN FOLDING.
The simultaneous identification of all chromosomes from a cell by fluorescence in situ hybridization (IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION, FLUORESCENCE) with chromosome-specific florescent probes that are discerned by their different emission spectra.
Nanometer-sized particles that are nanoscale in three dimensions. They include nanocrystaline materials; NANOCAPSULES; METAL NANOPARTICLES; DENDRIMERS, and QUANTUM DOTS. The uses of nanoparticles include DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and cancer targeting and imaging.
