Dielectric Confinement Effect on Calculating the Band Gap of PbSe Quantum Dots
- Received Date: 2010-11-24
Abstract: Considering the dielectric confinement effect on excitonics of PbSe quantum dots (QDs), a correction factor in the wave function was introduced to propose a new band gap calculation model for QDs. The modified model showed great consistency with the experimental data, especially in small size range. According to the variation of confined barrier, the band gap calculation model of PbSe QDs was analyzed in different solvents. The calculating results showed that the modified model was almost solvent-independent, which was consistent with our experimental results and related reports.
