Furthermore, there still lacks of the qualitative analysis about the blinking mechanism.

Figure 1b shows the histograms of fluorescence blinking rate for single QDs on glass coverslips and encased in ITO, respectively. On the analysis of fluorescence decay kinetics by the method of least-squares. Excitation Quantum dot luminescence. ASC Nano 4— Bright and grey states in CdSe-CdS nanocrystals exhibiting strongly reduced blinking.

USA— The fluorescence blinking has been largely suppressed while the lifetime has not been considerably reduced. Note that ITO significantly reduces the average blinking rate by more than an order of magnitude.

Actually, the measured decay curve F t was a scatter convolution of its response to the excitation light flash G tone need to deconvolve the decay curve with the equitation,to determine the real lifetimes It is found in the upper part of Fig.


The project is sponsored by Program No. Fitting parameters for QDs on glass coverslips: Histograms of the proportion of on-state are showed in Fig.

The schematic of the excitation-relaxation cycle of QD and possible electron transfer pathways between QD and ITO nanoparticles is described by the following set of kinetic equations. We selemide get the following equations about and. Dabbousi and Moungi G Bawendi and J.

A universal power law behavior. Additional Information How to cite this article: The fluorescence intensity trajectories for single QDs on glass coverslips and encased in ITO were recorded by the confocal scanning fluorescence microscope system. Interfacial electron transfer dynamics. Methods 5— A single-particle fluorescence study. To combine Equations 2 and 3we can get. This rationale motivated researchers to investigate blinking suppression of QDs by perturbing the energy states of QDs, modifying Auger recombination rates, changing positive charged state back to the neutral state and so on.

B— P on selrnide and P off t of single QDs in the two cases show a power law distribution at short time but deviate from this distribution at long time tails, as shown in Fig. The amplitude-weighted average lifetimes for single QDs on glass coverslips and encased in ITO are andrespectively. The blinking was considered as random processes of ionization and neutralization under continuous laser excitation, such as Auger ionization and transient electron transfer from core to resonant energy states on or near the surface The blinking behavior will reduce the photons generation rate 16cause difficulty in single particle tracking 17and degrade the performance naanocrystals practical applications in photovoltaics and optoelectronics 4.


A blinking event is defined as a transition between on and off states The typical fluorescence decay curves are shown in Fig. Methods 3— In addition, there is no feasible method reported for suppressing the fluorescence blinking of NIR QDs.

Blinking photoluminescence properties of single TiO 2 nanodiscs: Acknowledgments The project is sponsored by Program No.

The probabilities of QD remaining in the on and off states must approach to zero when their duration approaches to infinity. We also prepared the contrast sample with only single QDs on glass singlee as a control experiment.
