Dynamic Effect of Solvation on the Optical Properties of a CdTe Nanocrystal

2013-03-01
Changes in the optical response of a CdTe quantum dot (QD) due to dynamic and surface effects are investigated using ab initio methods. The model successfully captures experimentally reported non-linear trends in the optical spectra. The combination of ab initio molecular dynamics, time-dependent DFT, and optical spectroscopy provides a very effective method to investigate various dynamic effects on very small QDs, and to explore generalizable trends for similar structures.
