Adsorption is key to doping nanocrystals

Semiconductor nanocrystals, or quantum dots, have often proved difficult to dope. But researchers at the Naval Research Laboratory and University of Minnesota, both in the US, have discovered that the ease of doping depends on the structure of the nanocrystal. They used this information to incorporate manganese into nanocrystals of cadmium selenide (CdSe) for the first time.
