Synthetic routes to mercury chalcogenide quantum dots

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mercury chalcogenides are a relatively unexplored family of semiconductor quantum dots despite having novel optical properties that have potential applications in solar energy conversion, optical amplification and even biological imaging. In this review, we explore the synthetic chemistry behind the preparation of these materials and their resulting optical characteristics.
