Wide band gap semiconductor quantum dots (for example CdS) need extensive studies as they are capable of showing excitonic absorption even at room temperature. This paper reports chemical synthesis of CdS quantum dots and their characterization by XRD, TEM, UV-VIS, PL and EDS. Possible applications of the fabricated samples in the field of electronics are also investigated.
