Luminescence is a consecuense of electronic transitions in semiconductor nanoparticles. Electrons localized in chemical bonds are released when absorb higher energy than the corresponding bond energy. Once released, electrons are free in the crystalline structure, certain time interval until a broken chemical bond catch it. Thinking in energy terms, electrons jump to higher level and after decay, returning part of the absorbed energy in light. In quantum dots, similar process occur, but slighly more complex. The emission of these CdS particles is due to electronic transitions from chemical bonds to insaturated bonds localized on nanoparticle surface. Due to crystal size, light emitted is visible, because you needed more energy to realise the electrons compared to micro or macroscopic CdS, and then you get yellow tonality.

Can anyone pleasa tell me that why is it so much gliteering?????

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

Partner network:

Next partner events of TINC

We are Media Partner of:
