We report on ultrafast carrier dynamics in nanocrystalline CdSe thin films prepared by chemical solution deposition. The photoluminescence and transient absorption dynamics have spectrally dependent decay faster at shorter wavelengths. The spectral behavior of the decay rates in samples with different nanocrystal sizes and the sensitivity of the dynamics on the surface modification indicate the dominant role of the surface states in the photoluminescence. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We examined the early-stage (within a few hours) properties in air of nanometer scale islands formed on a CdSe/ZnSe surface. When a CdSe/ZnSe surface grown in vacuum was exposed to air, some islands were newly formed. The aspect ratio of the island was found to increase first and then decrease....
