Dopant induced diameter tuning of Mn-doped CdTe nanorods in aqueous solution

High quality Mn-doped CdTe nanorods with uniform diameter were synthesized in aqueous phase by
spontaneous self-organization of Mn-doped CdTe nanoparticles into nanorods. The diameter of the CdTe
nanorods increased gradually from 4.1 to 10.2 nm for 0–4.2% Mn incorporations. The intermediate step in
the nanorod growth was found to be double or triple chain aggregation. The X-ray diffraction (XRD)
patterns of the Mn doped samples retained the same crystal structure as the CdTe nanocrystals, indicating
no second phase formation for Mn ion. XPS, ICP-AES and ESR data demonstrate successful incorporation of
Mn ions in CdTe nanorods. Superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) measurements reveal
that all of these nanocrystals exhibited ferromagnetic behavior, with a coercive field (Hc) of 2.6 kOe.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika

Next partner events of TINC

We are Media Partner of:
