Abstract

The effect of external electric fields on the photoluminescence of quantum-sized nanocrystals of cadmium selenide excited by photons of various energies is studied. Photoluminescence quenching by external electric fields is found to be different for nanoparticles with different shapes (quantum dots and nanorods) and does not depend on the exciting photon energy. The relationship between the strength of the external electric field and the degree of quenching is determined empirically for both types of nanoparticles. A possible mechanism for the effect of an external electric field on the excitation and quenching of photoluminescence in quantumsized nanoparticles is discussed.
