The Preparation of IV–VI Semiconductor Nanomaterials

This chapter expands on the previous two chapters by describing the synthesis of IV–VI quantum dots, focusing on infrared-emitting lead-based chalcogenide materials, and describes their optical properties, low growth temperature and morphologies. We extend this to look at the synthesis of related materials, such as tin- and germanium-based chalcogenides.
