Title: Synthesis of CdS/CdSe core/shell ultra small nanostructures using new microwave assisted ultrasonic sol gel route

Core-shell CdS/CdSe nanostructures have been synthesized by new microwave assisted ultrasonic sol gel route. The solution was obtained by dissolving cadmium acetate and Thiourea in the molar ratio 1:1 in Triethlioamine. The solution was Ultrasonically irradiated by Ultrasonic crystal at 40 Hz for 3 hours at 70°C. The sol was kept for another 24 hours for gel formation. Selenium dioxide was used as a selenium source and added separately. The gel was spin coated on Quartz and Glass slides followed by microwave heat treatment. The samples were characterized by structural morphological and optical characterization. XRD studies confirm the zinc blende phase of the CdS nanoparticles. The mean nanocrystal sizes calculated using Scherrer equation is ∼1.2nm. Optical studies show the strong blue shift in the spectra due to very small size of the nanocrystals. TEM and HRTEM confirm the formation of core shell structures.
