Functionalized Self-Assembly of Colloidal CdX (X=S, Se) Nanorods on Solid Substrates for Devices Applications

Abstract

In comparison with randomly oriented NRs, self-assembly of the colloidal CdX (X=S, Se) NRs into well-organized large-scale structures exhibit unique collective properties. Moreover, anisotropic structural feature of self-assemblies preserved from colloidal CdX (X=S, Se) NRs has opened up exciting opportunities in the field of nanotechnology applications. We present the latest strategies for self-assembly of colloidal NRs on solid substrates, further focus on the self-assembled NRs for application in devices. Advanced progress in the preparation of NRs building blocks on the basis of nanofabrication techniques and comprehensive study on the interactions of NRs with substrates will remarkably expand the application of colloidal semiconductor NRs. Deeper mastering of driving forces are perhaps the key goals to engineer future functional structures based on NRs.
