Because  these semiconducting nano particles have specific property to substantiate  the  electron confinement in all three dimensions. Obviously if u are going to study the Quantum mechanics through nanotechnology, a electronic characteristic play a significant role in semiconducting material.

Thanks for your reply. 

Do you have any text on Quantum Confinement, if yes, then can you please upload it.

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
