Tailoring quantum dot assemblies to extend exciton coherence times and improve exciton transport
MetadataShow full item record
Electron energy transfer (EET) through nanostructured assemblies plays a crucial role in a wide range of emerging technologies such as quantum dot solar cells, quantum computing, molecular electronics, excitonic transistors, and light emitting diodes. These technologies are very dependent on excitonic lifetimes which are short on the order of a nanosecond. In order to efficiently use this short time scale, EET needs to be as fast as possible. This leads to an interest in the application of coherent exciton transfer. To examine the possibility of coherent transfer, we ask a simple question: How ...
