This is a combined experiment/computational lab in which cadmium selenide quantum dot nanoparticles are synthesized, their spectra are studied, and the results are modeling using the CNDO/INDO semiempirical electronic structure code. Synthesis and Size Dependent Properties of CdSe Quantum Dots.

Part 1: Synthesis:

Synthesis and Size Dependent Properties of CdSe Quantum Dots, Evan R. Trivedi and Shelby L. Hatch
