Title: Metal chalcogenide quantum dot-sensitized 1D-based semiconducting heterostructures for optical-related applications

Abstract

In terms of understanding and tuning the optoelectronic behavior within functional devices, quantum dot (QD)-based heterostructures represent an excellent model system and opportunity for analyzing exciton dissociation and charge separation across a well-defined nanoscale interface.
