Molecular-like photochemistry from semiconductor nanocrystals
Raleigh NC (SPX) Jan 22, 2016
Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated the transfer of triplet exciton energy from semiconductor nanocrystals to surface-bound molecular acceptors, extending the lifetime of the originally prepared excited state by six orders of magnitude. This finding has implications for fields ranging from solar energy conversion to photochemical synthesis to optoelectronics to light therapy for cancer treatment. Excitons are the electron/hole pairs formed in semiconductor nanocrysta ... read more
