The local luminescence properties of individual CdSe nanowires composed of segments of zinc blende and wurtzite crystal structures are investigated by low-temperature scanning tunneling luminescence spectroscopy. Light emission from the wires is achieved by the direct injection of holes and electrons, without the need for coupling to tip-induced plasmons in the underlying metal substrate. The photon energy is found to increase with decreasing wire diameter due to exciton confinement. The bulk bandgap extrapolated from the energy versus diameter dependence is consistent with photon emission from the zinc blende-type CdSe sections.

    Temperature-sensitive photoluminescence (PL) of Ir(ppy)3 is observed in a spin-coated film of TPD containing 5wt% Ir(ppy)3. Numerical calculation is made for the emission intensity using rate equations for three zero-field splitting substates of the triplet T1 state. Good agreement is obtained for the temperature dependence between the calculated and measured PLs. It is concluded that (1) the... [Show full abstract]

      Tuning to G(O) flat: Photoluminescence in graphene oxide (GO) suspensions can be tuned from red to blue emission by gradually changing the amounts of sp(2) - and sp(3) -bonded carbon atoms through reduction of the surface oxide groups. Electron-hole recombination from two different types of excited states is proposed to explain the luminescence in GO at varying degrees of reduction.

        Intermediate band solar cells aim to exploit the energy of below bandgap energy photons. They are based on materials that are characterised by the existence of an additional electronic band (intermediate band) located in between the conduction and valence band. An optimised IBSC has near the same limiting efficiency potential (63.2%) than a triple junction solar cells but without requiring... [Show full abstract]

          The increasing demand for bandwidth is driving towards the deployment of large capacity transmission systems. Systems based on 10 Gb/s channel rates are being deployed and the plans for channel rates as high as 40 Gb/s are in offing. The paper considers polarization effects as an important limiting parameter for high speed communication networks like SONET and STM. This limitation is estimated... [Show full abstract]
