In the last two decades, semiconductor quantum dots—small colloidal nanoparticles—have garnered a great deal of scientific interest because of their unique properties. Among nanomaterials, CdTe holds special technological importance as the only known II–VI material that can form conventional p–n junctions. This makes CdTe very important for the development of novel optoelectronic devices such as light-emitting diodes, solar cells, and lasers. Moreover, the demand for water-compatible light emitters and the most common biological buffers give CdTe quantum dots fields a veritable edge in biolabeling and bioimaging. Cadmium Telluride Quantum Dots: Advances and Applications focuses on CdTe quantum dots and addresses their synthesis, assembly, optical properties, and applications in biology and medicine. It makes for a very informative reading for anyone involved in nanotechnology and will also benefit those scientists who are looking for a comprehensive account on the current state of quantum dot–related research.

The objective of my thesis is to investigate the effect of ascorbic acid on CdTe quantum dots, which is an antioxidant. It was observed that the quantum dots recovered their luminescence intensity after the interaction of the ascorbic acid, where the intensity was quenched by the photosensitizer. The luminescence intensity increased gradually for 0.1mM- 0.5mM concentration of ascorbic acid and remained stable with higher concentrations of the antioxidant. Also, it was observed that under some reaction conditions like pH, temperature and concentration, ascorbic acid had a great influence on its photoluminescence. In the second part of the research project, I studied the influence of different chemicals on the luminescence intensity of CdTeHg (NIR) quantum dots. The interaction of certain chemical agents like bleach, dimethyl methyl phosphonate (DMMP), with these quantum dots had quenching effect on the luminescence intensity, whereas with the common background chemicals like ethanol could not quench the luminescence intensity of the quantum dots. Studies were carried out to find out the reasons behind this quenching and whether it is the singlet oxygen generated by these chemicals.

Probing Electronic and Vibronic States in CdTe Self assembled Quantum Dots and CdS Nanowires Using Room Temperature Resonant Raman Scattering

This is consistent with the interdiffusion of Zn and Cd which makes the confining potential shallower and the average diameter of the quantum dots larger.

Resonant Raman scattering (RRS) is a sensitive means to probe electronic and vibrational states in semiconductor nanostructures, even when such states are not accessible either through photoluminescence or transport techniques. In this thesis, resonant Raman scattering is used to probe the electronic and vibronic states of CdTe/ZnTe quantum dots and CdS nanowires at room temperature. In case of the CdTe/ZnTe quantum dots, the sensitivity of the ZnTe longitudinal optical phonon (LO) resonance is used to probe the excited state in the CdTe quantum dots. In addition, this technique is utilized to study the energy shifts due to post growth rapid thermal annealing. Due to annealing, both the ground and excited state energies of the quantum dots move to a higher value. This is consistent with the interdiffusion of Zn and Cd which makes the confining potential shallower and the average diameter of the quantum dots larger. In the case of the CdS nanowires, the 1-LO and 2-LO resonance is readily observed above the broad photoluminescence (PL) background. The lineshape of the integrated intensity of the 1-LO and 2-LO resembles the PL spectrum suggesting that the RRS probes the electronic states in both the ensemble and in single nanowires. In addition, the energy separation between the peaks of the 1-LO and 2-LO resonance of the ensemble CdS nanowires was found to be 34 meV which is comparable to the 37 meV value measured in bulk samples. We also show that spatially-resolved Raman scattering at resonance probes the structural uniformity in a single CdS nanowire and is able to identify the layers of the CdTe/ZnTe quantum dots sample. We found RRS intensity of single CdS nanowire strongly depends on the morphology of the wire. In conclusion, we have shown that RRS at room temperature is a sensitive and nondestructive tool to probe electronic and vibration sates as well as structural uniformity in semiconductor nanostructures.

Abstract: The size‐dependent optical properties of quantum dots (QDs) are frequently exploited for use in medical imaging and labelling applications. Similarly, presented here, they also elicit profound size‐dependent anticoagulant properties. Cadmium telluride quantum dot (QDs) (3.2nm) were shown to have a dramatic anticoagulant effect centred on around the intrinsic coagulation pathway, compared to their 3.6 nm counterparts. Several clinically relevant diagnostic tests were carried out over a concentration range of the QDs and demonstrated that the 3.2 nm QDs elicited their response on the intrinsic pathway as a whole, yet the activity of the individual intrinsic coagulation factors was not affected. The mechanism appears also to be strongly influenced by the concentration of calcium ions and not cadmium ions leached from the QDs. Static and shear‐based primary haemostasis assays were also carried out, demonstrating a profound anticoagulant effect which was independent of platelets and phospholipids. The data presented here suggest that the physical–chemical properties of the QDs may have a role in the modulation of haemostasis and the coagulation cascade, in a yet not fully understood mechanism. This study has implications for the use of similar QDs as diagnostic or therapeutic tools in vivo, and for the occupational health and safety of those working with such materials. Abstract : Cadmium telluride quantum dots (3.2nm) exhibit a profound anticoagulant response centred on the intrinsic pathway. The mechanism appears also to be strongly influenced by the concentration of calcium ions and not the presence of cadmium ions.

In the last decade, nanomaterials have become a double-edged sword. On one hand, nanomaterials have proven their limitless potential not only for technological applications, but also for medical ones. On the other hand, the increasing use of these nanomaterials has raised concerns regarding their safety for environmental and human health, due to their potential toxicity. The toxic effects of nanomaterials depend on their type, surface geometry, diameter, length and function. This book intends to provide a comprehensive evidence-based overview of nanomaterial toxicity, from their synthesis and characterization, environmental impact, tests to assess their toxicity in vitro and in vivo, ways to modulate their impact on living organisms, to their beneficial use in biomedical applications.

From the Introduction: Nanotechnology and its underpinning sciences are progressing with unprecedented rapidity. With technical advances in a variety of nanoscale fabrication and manipulation technologies, the whole topical area is maturing into a vibrant field that is generating new scientific research and a burgeoning range of commercial applications, with an annual market already at the trillion dollar threshold. The means of fabricating and controlling matter on the nanoscale afford striking and unprecedented opportunities to exploit a variety of exotic phenomena such as quantum, nanophotonic and nanoelectromechanical effects. Moreover, researchers are elucidating new perspectives on the electronic and optical properties of matter because of the way that nanoscale materials bridge the disparate theories describing molecules and bulk matter. Surface phenomena also gain a greatly increased significance; even the well-known link between chemical reactivity and surface-to-volume ratio becomes a major determinant of physical properties, when it operates over nanoscale dimensions. Against this background, this comprehensive work is designed to address the need for a dynamic, authoritative and readily accessible source of information, capturing the full breadth of the subject. Its six volumes, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines including material sciences, chemistry, physics and life sciences, have been written and edited by an outstanding team of international experts. Addressing an extensive, cross-disciplinary audience, each chapter aims to cover key developments in a scholarly, readable and critical style, providing an indispensible first point of entry to the literature for scientists and technologists from interdisciplinary fields. The work focuses on the major classes of nanomaterials in terms of their synthesis, structure and applications, reviewing nanomaterials and their respective technologies in well-structured and comprehensive articles with extensive cross-references. It has been a constant surprise and delight to have found, amongst the rapidly escalating number who work in nanoscience and technology, so many highly esteemed authors willing to contribute. Sharing our anticipation of a major addition to the literature, they have also captured the excitement of the field itself in each carefully crafted chapter. Along with our painstaking and meticulous volume editors, full credit for the success of this enterprise must go to these individuals, together with our thanks for (largely) adhering to the given deadlines. Lastly, we record our sincere thanks and appreciation for the skills and professionalism of the numerous Elsevier staff who have been involved in this project, notably Fiona Geraghty, Megan Palmer and Greg Harris, and especially Donna De Weerd-Wilson who has steered it through from its inception. We have greatly enjoyed working with them all, as we have with each other.
