Paper Abstract

We present a systematic study of the influence of probing laser power-density on the band-edge of CdSxSe1-x nanoparticles embedded in a glass matrix. Both the position and the strength of the band-edge luminescence are found to be very sensitive to the laser power. It is observed that the band-edge luminescence shifts initially towards low energy and then towards high energy with increasing laser power. The result are analyzed in terms of laser induced local heating and band-filling mechanism, both of which are found to be very effective processes for nanoparticle systems. Laser induced local heating of the nanoparticles are determined by analyzing temperature- dependent Raman spectra from the sample.
