The current state and perspectives in natural and life sciences are strongly linked to the development of novel complex organic-inorganic materials at various levels of organization, including semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) and QD-based nanostructures with unique optical and physico-chemical properties.
This book provides a comprehensive description of the morphology and main physico-chemical properties of self-assembled inorganic-dye nanostructures as well as some applications in the field of nanotechnology. It crosses disciplines to examine essential nanoassembly principles of QD interaction with organic molecules, excited state dynamics in nanoobjects, theoretical models, and methodologies. Based on ensemble and single-nanoobject detection, the book quantitatively shows (for the first time on a series of nanoassemblies) that surface-mediated processes (formation of trap states) dictate the probability of several of the most interesting and potentially useful photophysical phenomena (FRET- or non-FRET-induced quenching of QD photoluminescence) observed for colloidal QDs and QD'dye nanoassemblies. Further, nanostructures can be generated by nanolithography and thereafter selectively decorated with dye molecules. A similar approach applies to natural nanosized surface heterogeneities.

Editorial Reviews

"This book provides a comprehensive overview of different aspects of hybrid nanostructures self-assembled from light-emitting inorganic semiconductor quantum dots and organic dyes. Single-nanoobject spectroscopy data analysis is especially useful, as it allows for sound insights into a variety of photophysical phenomena in these hybrid systems, such as luminescence quenching and FRET. The book will be a useful reference in the field of the synthesis, optical spectroscopy studies, and applications of hybrid inorganic-organic assemblies."¿Prof. Andrey Rogach, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
