The physical properties of inorganic crystalline materials can be dramatically transformed by controlled introduction of impurities or other defects, without which most semiconductor technologies including transistors, diodes, and solar cells would not be possible. The development and characterization of high-quality doped inorganic crystals has consequently been a perennial research frontier. This talk will describe some of our group’s recent research into the development and characterization of doped semiconductor quantum dots as new forms of matter at this research frontier. Recent chemical advances and unique physical/spectroscopic properties of these materials will be discussed.
