A method to image charge is used to measure the diffusion coefficient of electrons in films of CdSe nanocrystals at room temperature. This method makes possible the study of charge transport in films exhibiting extremely high resistances or very small diffusion coefficients. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    The radiation emitted by sodium films in the 2.5-5 eV photon energy range as a result of bombardment by 300-eV electrons is measured. It is shown that the feature observed in the region of 4 eV is associated with the radiative decay of surface plasmons, while the radiation emitted at 4.6 and...
