Synthesis, characterization and functionalization of quantum dots

This work will focus around the ‘bottom-up’ synthesis of monodisperse quantum dots at different sizes as well as their characterization. The methods of choice will be absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, dynamic light scattering (DLS), small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
The main objective will be to address the influence of the immediate surroundings, such as ligands or solvents, onto each individual method and their correlation. more
