Scholarcy highlights

  • Article Views are the COUNTER-compliant sum of full text article downloads since November 2008 across all institutions and individuals
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • We report here on a detailed study on PbS colloidal quantum dots
  • A characterization via X-ray diffraction and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy allowed us to reliably determine the diameter and the shape of the nanocrystals. These data, together with second-derivative analysis of the absorption spectra, allowed us to determine the size dependence of seven transitions in the absorption spectrum; some of these transitions were identified on the basis of their normalized confinement energy
  • The extinction coefficients were calculated using concentrations obtained from inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry, and their size dependence was found to follow a power law with exponent equal to ∼2.5
