Cadmium selenide quantum dots are among the most studied, with potential applications not only in medicine, but as components of solar cells, quantum computers, light-emitting diodes and more.
2 Cadmium selenide, cadmium telluride and cadmium zinc telluride-based materials 3.
The dots, from 2 to 10 nanometers (nm) across, are typically made of cadmium selenide or lead sulfide.
Made of cadmium selenide (CdSe), the quantum dot is 3-6nm in diameter and excels in size distribution and photochemical stability.
This new chemical method for making low cost, four-legged cadmium selenide quantum dots, which previous research has shown to be particularly effective at converting sunlight into electrical energy, knocks down a major barrier in developing quantum-dot-based photovoltaics as an alternative to the conventional, more expensive silicon-based solar cells.
These are ultra-small fluorescent beads of cadmium selenide that can convert the blue light produced by an LED into a warm white light with a spectrum similar to that of incandescent light.
Scientists from the University of Notre Dame used nano-sized particles of titanium oxide and covered them in either cadmium sulphide or cadmium selenide.
