Cadmium Selenide Quantum Dots (CdSe)

Cadmium Selenide (CdSe) semiconductor nanocrystals, also known as quantum dots, with size ranging from 2 to 7 nanometers. Their optical properties span the entire visible spectrum (blue to red). These particles have an outer surface coating of organic ligands for stability and solubility in organic solution. The surface ligands can be exchanged into water-soluble ligands to render the nanocrystals water soluble. QCE quantum dots are dispersed in toluene. For custom emission wavelengths, custom solvents and larger quantities, please Contact Us.

Quantum Dot Instructional Kits

w-illumination-and-blank

Quantum dots are a fun and colorful way to introduce traditionally intimidating concepts in Physics and Chemistry into the classroom. They can be used to illustrate the physical concept of colors as light energy in the form of waves with distinct wavelengths. They are also an excellent tool for demonstrating quantum phenomena in advanced courses. The size-dependent spectral properties of Quantum dots can be measured quantitatively and illustrate the particle-in-a-box theory of quantum mechanics. Teaching materials and simple hands-on activities using Quantum dots have already been developed with support from the National Science Foundation and can be found in these links.

Navillum Quantum dot kit includes a set of three (3) to five (5) distinct colors or wavelengths of CdSe/ZnS core/shell Quantum dots casted in a solid polymer (NOT LIQUID) within a sealed plastic cuvette compatible for UV/Vis spectrophotometry and fluorimetry. Cadmium-free (Cd-free) options are also available. The cuvettes can be illuminated directly by an excitation source such as a black light, blue LED, or a tungsten-halogen lamp. The Quantum dot wavelengths are dependent on the size of the particles incorporated in the solid polymer since the physical size of the Quantum dots dictate the wavelengths that these particles absorb and emit. Measuring the absorption wavelengths with a spectrometer (can be purchased separately) allows students to calculate the actual particle size of the Quantum dot.

Navillum Quantum dot kits are simpler and worry free.

  • No more transferring from stock solutions to cuvettes. Avoid accidental spills or direct contact with the Quantum dots.
  • No solvent evaporation. Avoid particle aggregation and rapid deterioration of Quantum dot properties.
  • No more rushing to conduct experiments. Our Quantum dots are stable longer term having same core/shell quality grade as the ones we provide to display manufacturers.
  • No more hazardous wastes to think about.
  • NEW PRODUCT ALERT: Quantum dot kit now available in microcuvette size!

 

The five color Navillum Quantum dot kit comes with a bonus blank cuvette for quantitative measurements. Order now and catch our discounted pricing for a limited time. Custom orders in glass or quartz cuvettes will take up to two weeks.

Note: Quantum dots should be kept in a dark place at room temperature to extend the shelf life as long as possible. Quantum dots should NOT be kept in the refrigerator or freezer.

Micro Instructional Kits

O-IMG_6521

Navillum Quantum dot micro-cuvette kit includes a set of three (3) to five (5) distinct colors or wavelengths of CdSe/ZnS core/shell Quantum dots casted in a solid polymer (NOT LIQUID) within a sealed 2-clear sided plastic cuvette compatible for UV/Vis spectrophotometry. Cadmium-free (Cd-free) options are also available. The micro-cuvettes can be illuminated directly by an excitation source such as a black light, blue LED, or a tungsten-halogen lamp and fits standard sized cuvette holders. The five color kit comes with a bonus blank cuvette for quantitative measurements which can also be purchased separately. Custom orders in glass or quartz cuvettes will take up to two weeks.

Note: Quantum dots should be kept in a dark place at room temperature to extend the shelf life as long as possible. Quantum dots should NOT be kept in the refrigerator or freezer.
