Abstract

The photoluminescence quenching control in CdSe quantum dot (QD) - carbon nantotube (CNT) composite colloids was investigated using a silica-shell spacer. These one-dimensional nanoparticles were found to minimize the spacing between nanocrystals, thus facilitating efficient electronic and energy transfer along the resulting nanotubes. The presence of a silica shell between the nanocrystals and the CNTs was found to screen the electronic coupling between nanoparticles and templates, keeping the energy levels unaffected. This electronic coupling phenomena results in minimizing the PL quenching and maintaining the quantum-confinement effects.
