Abstract

We have synthesized white light emitting ternary Zn0.8Cd0.2S nanocrystals with high quantum yields of about 99%. Through detailed surface and structural characterization with the investigation of Cd and Zn coordination numbers, it can be found that besides surface state emission, the highly effective white light emission is strongly related to the surface chemical states of Zn and Zn-O/Cd-O bonding.
