Semiconductor quantum dots are zero-dimensional semiconductor materials where quantum confinement plays an important role in their electronic structure and thus their physical properties. We use solution phase techniques to synthesize colloidal semiconductor quantum dots and their doped nanostructures. In this talk, I will discuss two of our recent work in such systems. First I will discuss diluted magnetic semiconductor quantum dots, where nanoparticles are doped with transition metals. We study carrier-dopant exchange interactions in such systems using circularly polarized magneto-photoluminescence. We found that quantum confinement can profoundly modify such interactions. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss doping strategies for reducing the band gap of TiO2. TiO2 is a useful wide gap material for photocatalysis and photovoltaics. However its band gap is too large for effective utilization of solar energy. Doping of TiO2 has been extensively studied with moderate effects. Here we use co-doping to reduce the band gap by as much as 50%, thus pave the way for their potential commercial applications.

Brief Bio
