Anisotropy of Structure and Optical Properties of Self-Assembled and Oriented Colloidal CdSe Nanoplatelets

Artsiom Antanovich, Anatol Prudnikau and Mikhail Artemyev


Atomically flat colloidal nanoplatelets with strong one-dimensional confinement represent the most recently discovered type of quantum-confined cadmium chalcogenide nanocrystals. In almost a decade a great progress has been achieved in the colloidal synthesis of nanoplatelets and understanding of their basic optical and electronic properties. However, up until recently methods of their controlled spatial orientation were quite scarce, what in turn hindered obtaining reliable information on their anisotropic structural and optical properties arising from their shape. In this paper we provide a mini-review of recent advances in this field of study.
