Title: Growth and characterization of ZnSe nanoparticles

ZnSe nanoparticles were prepared using a chemical bath deposition technique. X-ray diffraction study shows that the ZnSe crystallizes in the cubic phase. The crystallite size of the ZnSe samples calculated using the Scherrer’s formula was found to be slightly smaller than the Bohr exciton radius of bulk ZnSe. SEM studies show the growth of a mixture of nanorods and spherical nanoparticles. EDAX analysis confirms that the synthesized ZnSe nanoparticles are of good stiochiometry. Optical studies show the blue shift in the absorption edge for ZnSe nanoparticles caused by quantum confinement.
