Abstract

Liquid phase synthesis is a powerful method for the formation of uniform sized nanoparticles and nanoparticles with a faceted morphology. General strategies for the formation of nanoparticles and through chemical synthesis will be outlined. General strategies for the formation of faceted, branched and core-shell nanoparticles and through chemical synthesis will be outlined. The results presented will include the formation of silicon, germanium, SnS CZTS quantum dots. HRTEM and XRD data confirming crystal structure and composition will be outlined. The results presented will include optical characterization and surface modification chemistry. Transition metal doping of silicon quantum dots with also be discussed.
