New publication about trapped-hole diffusion in CdSe nanocrystals

July 2, 2018

In a new publication in Journal of Physical Chemistry C, James et al study the spatial dynamics of trapped photoexcited holes in CdSe nanorods, showing that trapped holes diffuse among traps.

Theory paper on trapped-hole diffusion

June 14, 2018

A new publication in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters , led by our theory collaborators Peyton Cline and Prof. Joel Eaves , describes DFT investigations into hole-trap states and the mechanism by which trapped holes diffuse on CdS nanocrystal surfaces. This supports previous work by group member James Utterback.
