Title: Dielectric function of quasi-2D semiconductor nanostructures

Abstract

The spatial and temporal dispersion of the dielectric function of the electron gas in quasi-2D quantum nanostructures has been studied. Analytical expressions for the dielectric function for a quantum well in the form of a {delta} function and a rectangular well of finite depth are derived for the first time. A criterion for transition to strictly 2D and strictly 3D cases was obtained.

  • In this study, inorganic cesium lead iodide (CsPbI 3) perovskite nanoparticles (PNPs) and perovskite nanowires (PNWs) with single-layer graphene (SLG) are combined to obtain 0D–2D PNP–SLG and 1D–2D PNW–SLG hybrids with improved light harvesting. Time-resolved single-nanostructure photoluminescence studies of PNPs, PNWs, and related hybrids reveal (i) quasi-two-state photoluminescence blinking in PNPs, (ii) highly polarized photoluminescence emitted by PNWs and (iii) efficient interfacial electron transfer between perovskite nanostructures and SLG in both PNP–SLG and PNW–SLG hybrids. Thus, doping of poorly absorbing, highly conductive SLG with perovskite nanocrystals and nanowires provides a simple, yet efficient path to obtain hybrids with increased light-harvestingmore » properties for potential utilization in the next-generation photodetectors and photovoltaic devices, including polarization sensitive photodetectors.« less

  • Defect-deformational mean-field theory of cooperative nucleation of ordered ensembles of nanoparticles on the isotropic surface of solids with the participation of quasistatic Rayleigh waves is developed. The system of nonlinear kinetic equations for the Fourier-amplitudes of the concentration of surface defects (adatoms or dimers) is derived and nonlinear multimode dynamics of self-organization of hexagonal ensembles of nanoparticles is described within a mean-field approximation. The mechanism of the control of the ensemble symmetry with the help of external stress is considered. The theoretical results correspond to the experimental ones obtained in studies of formation of quasihexagonal ensembles of nanoparticles under laser-controlledmore » deposition of Ga atoms on the tip of a silica fiber.« less
  • We report on the results of studying quasi-two-dimensional nanostructures synthesized here in the form of semiconducting CdSe nanoplatelets with a characteristic longitudinal size of 20–70 nm and a thick-ness of a few atomic layers. Their morphology is studied using TEM and AFM and X-ray diffraction analysis; the crystal structure and sizes are determined. At room and cryogenic temperatures, the spectra and kinetics of the photoluminescence of such structures (quantum wells) are investigated. A hybrid light-emitting diode operating on the basis of CdSe nanoplatelets as a plane active element (emitter) is developed using the organic materials TAZ and TPD to formmore » electron and hole transport layers, respectively. The spectral and current-voltage characteristics of the constructed device with a radiation wavelength λ = 515 nm are obtained. The device triggering voltage is 5.5 V (visible glow). The use of quasi-two-dimensional structures of this type is promising for hybrid light-emitting diodes with pure color and low operating voltages.« less
