Abstract

It was demonstrated that ZnSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs) could undergo structural transitions from 3D islands to 2D layer during growth interruption (GI) under hydrogen flows. In addition to the structural transition, a complex ripening process of the ZnSe QDs were observed together. Temperature-dependent photoluminescence (PL) measurements show that the ZnSe QDs turned into a quasi-2D layer, when the GI reached 60 s. PL lineshape evolution through the GI suggests two ripening regimes for the ZnSe QDs, which are in striking agreement with those for CdSe QDs.
