The synthesis microstructure and photoluminescent properties of nanoparticles of pristine and Mn2+-activated (Zn,Cd)S were investigated. the nanoparticles were synthesized via a chemical colloidal or solvothermal route. The TEM and SEM imaging, and x-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis were used for the study of the nanoparticles. The average size of the nanoparticles was found to be ca. 5-10 nm in diameter. In the nanocrystalline (Zn,Cd)S:Mn2+ phases, the absorption of (Zn,Cd)S was found to dominate and no absorption due to Mn2+ was observed.
