Scholarcy highlights

  • We present an overview of the current progress in the understanding of the optical properties of individual II-VI semiconductor nanocrystals
  • We begin with a presentation of the conceptual development of the theory required to model the electronic structure of these systems
  • This is followed by an overview of the current experimental results obtained from the spectroscopy of individual semiconductor nanocrystals, and in particular, we focus on the study of photoluminescence intermittency and spectral diffusion
  • We conclude that the surface of small semiconductor crystals plays an important role in determining their optical properties
