Condensed-Matter Spectroscopy


It is experimentally shown that, prior to the formation of CdSe quantum dots in fluorophosphate glasses with cadmium and selenium ions in the process of synthesis, subnanosized molecular clusters (CdSe) n are formed, which exhibit luminescence in the visible spectral region upon UV excitation. Heat treatment of the glasses increases the size of molecular clusters and makes their optical properties closer to the optical properties of CdSe semiconductor quantum dots. An increase in the sample temperature from 20 to 250°C leads to reversible thermal quenching of the luminescence.
