Paper Abstract

We study size dependence of kinetic and spectral properties of near-infrared luminescence from PbS quantum dots in colloidal solution. Luminescence lifetimes are found to lie between 250 ns for the largest quantum dots and 2:5 μs for the smallest ones, while the Stoke's shift is found to increase from 4-5 to 300 meV. These results are explained by the presence of the long-living in-gap state, with the size-dependent energy. Analytical modeling shows that the relaxation from this state is dominant in small quantum dots and negligible in large ones. Biexponential luminescence decay with the size-dependent recombination rates is predicted for quantum dots of all sizes.
