In this work, Mn-doped PbSe nanocrystals (NCs) have been, for the first time, prepared through a high-temperature organic solution approach. To ensure that all the Mn2+ ions are indeed incorporated into the NCs and not only physically presented at the surface, Mn-Se prebonded precursor was selected, and a ligand-exchange process was also conducted before and after the synthesis, respectively. Various analyses including EDS, ICP, XRD, SQUID, and EPR confirm that the Mn2+ ions have been successfully doped into PbSe NCs.
