Abstract
Doping is one of the key technologies in modern semiconductor science and industry. However, the synthetic control of doped nanocrystals is difficult to achieve. Here, we report the facile synthesis of manganese (II) doped ZnSe nanocrystals with controlled dimensionality. A strong Lewis acid-base reaction using air-stable and environmentally friendly metal chlorides as precursors can readily produce a large amount of quantum-confined ZnSe:Mn2+ nanocrystals. A combination of primary and secondary amines is used to control the synthetic chemistry, which enables the shape of the doped nanocrystals to be controlled. The final doping concentration of the products can be finely tunable, which is critical for carrier relaxation dynamics. It turns out that the threshold doping level for the maximum photoluminescence intensity of doped nanocrystals highly depends on their shape. Furthermore, this simple synthetic method is extendable to obtain various Mn2+-doped II-VI semiconductor nanocrystals such as CdS:Mn2+ and ZnS:Mn2+. Our study will facilitate the fundamental understanding of the doped semiconductor nanocrystals with different shapes, which is potentially useful for a wide range of applications such as lighting, photocatalysis, and bioimaging. © 2019 Author(s).
