The synthesis and unique tunable optical properties of core/crown nanoplatelets having an inverted Type-I heterostructure are presented. Here, colloidal 2D CdS/CdSe heteronanoplatelets are grown with thickness of four monolayers using seed-mediated method. In this work, it is shown that the emission peak of the resulting CdS/CdSe heteronanoplatelets can be continuously spectrally tuned between the peak emission wavelengths of the core only CdS nanoplatelets (421 nm) and CdSe nanoplatelets (515 nm) having the same vertical thickness. In these inverted Type-I nanoplatelets, the unique continuous tunable emission is enabled by adjusting the lateral width of the CdSe crown, having a narrower bandgap, around the core CdS nanoplatelet, having a wider bandgap, as a result of the controlled lateral quantum confinement in the crown region additional to the pure vertical confinement. As a proof-of-concept demonstration, a white light generation is shown by using color conversion with these CdS/CdSe heteronanoplatelets having finely tuned thin crowns, resulting in a color rendering index of 80. The robust control of the electronic structure in such inverted Type-I heteronanoplatelets achieved by tailoring the lateral extent of the crown coating around the core template presents a new enabling pathway for bandgap engineering in solution-processed quantum wells.


Excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots
KARABULUT, İBRAHİM; Safak, H.; Tomak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2008-08-07)
The excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots with a semiparabolic confining potential are studied under the density matrix formalism. First, within the framework of the strong confinement approximation, we present the excitonic states and then calculate the excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties, such as second harmonic generation, third harmonic generation, nonlinear absorption coefficient and refractive index changes. We find the explicit analytical expres...
Free vibration characteristics of a 3d mixed formulation beam element with force-based consistent mass matrix
Soydas, Ozan; Sarıtaş, Afşin (2017-09-01)
In this analytical study, free vibration analyses of a 3d mixed formulation beam element are performed by adopting force-based consistent mass matrix that incorporates shear and rotary inertia effects. The force-based approach takes into account the actual distribution of mass of an element in the derivation of the mass matrix. Moreover, the force-based approach enables accurate determination of free vibration frequencies of members with varying geometry and material distribution without any need for specif...
Experimental Realization of Single Current Diffusion Tensor Magnetic Resonance Electrical Impedance Tomography
Sadighi, Mehdi; Şişman, Mert; Açıkgöz, Berk Can; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (2020-08-08)
To obtain low-frequency anisotropic conductivity distribution of biological tissues recently Diffusion Tensor Magnetic Resonance Electrical Impedance Tomography (DT-MREIT), which is combination of DTI and MREIT techniques, is proposed. There are two in vivo applications of DT-MREIT in the literature where two linearly independent current injection patterns are used. Decreasing the number of current injection patterns to one improves the feasibility of DT-MREIT in clinical applications. In this study, DT-MRE...
Delay characteristics comparison of coherently coupled high-Q multi-cavity array and single embedded quantum dot cavity systems
Kocaman, Serdar; Sayan, Gönül (2017-01-31)
The optical analogue to electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is modeled for two separate systems with the same formalism and the spectral characteristics together with the generated group delay are compared. First system is a coherently coupled high-Q multi-cavity array which represents the classical EIT and is limited by the finite broadening of the cavity and the second one is a single embedded quantum dot (QD) cavity system, a cavity-QD EIT, that depends on both QD broadening and cavity propert...
Nonlinear optical properties of a Woods-Saxon quantum dot under an electric field
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Aksahin, E.; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
A theoretical study of the effect of the confining potential on the nonlinear optical properties of two dimensional quantum dots is performed. A three-parameter Woods-Saxon potential is used within the density matrix formalism. The control of confinement by three parameters and an applied electric field gives one quite an advantage in studying their effects on the nonlinear properties. The coefficients investigated include the optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation and the change in the...
