Recent scientific progress has resulted in the development of sophisticated hybrid nanostructures composed of semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots, QDs) and metal nanoparticles (MNPs). These hybrid structures open up new possibilities for developing next generation nanoscale optoelectronic devices that combine the best attributes of each component material.The optical response of MNPs is dominated by surface plasmon resonances which create large local electromagnetic field enhancements. When coupled to surrounding semiconductor components, the enhanced local electric field results in strong absorption/emission, alteration in emission decay rates, enhancement in exciton emission and other interesting non-linear effects (multiphoton generation). Although hybrid nanostructures are poised to be utilized in a variety of applications, serious hurdles for the design of new devices still remain. These difficulties largely result from a poor understanding of how the structural components interact at the nanoscale. These synergetic interactions strongly depend on the exact composition and geometry of the structure, and therefore, a quantitative comparison between theory and experiment is often difficult to achieve. My dissertation work primarily focuses on paving a bridge between the experimental and theoretical studies and the mechanisms involved in exciton and multiexciton emission dynamics of single QDs in presence of plasmonic nanostructures by careful consideration of different parameters which significantly affect the interaction between these nanoparticles at a single particle level.

In this book, the authors discuss some of the main challenges and new opportunities in science and engineering research, which involve combining computational and experimental approaches as a promising strategy for arriving at new insights into composition–structure–property relations, even at the nanoscale. From a practical standpoint, the authors show that significant improvements in the material/biomolecular foresight by design, including a fundamental understanding of their physical and chemical properties, are vital and will undoubtedly help us to reach a new technological level in the future.

Nanotechnology is one of the growing areas of this century, also opening new horizons for tuning optical properties. This book introduces basic tuning schemes, including those on a single quantum object level, with an emphasis on surface and interface manipulation of semiconducting and metallic quantum dots. There are two opposing demands in current forefront applications of quantum dots as optical labels, namely high luminescence stability (suppression of luminescence intermittency) and controllable intermittency and bleaching on a single-particle level to facilitate super-resolution optical microscopy (for which Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell, and William E. Moerner were awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry). The book discusses these contradictory demands with respect to both an understanding of the basic processes and applications. The chapters are a combination of scholarly presentation and comprehensive review and include case studies from the authors’ research, including unpublished results. Special emphasis is on a detailed understanding of spectroscopic and dynamic properties of semiconducting quantum dots. The book is suitable for senior undergraduates and researchers in the fields of optical nanoscience, materials science, and nanotechnology.
