Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Alloyed Zn1−x−yCdxMnySe nanocrystals exhibiting bright intrinsic dual emission attractive for ratiometric optical nanothermometry are reported. Relative to earlier materials with related dual emission, these alloy nanocrystals require shorter syntheses, contain less Cd2+, and show dual emission that is less sensitive to nanocrystal shape, size, or surfaces.
