Hybrid systems based on graphene and semiconductor quantum dots are prospective materials for optoelectronics and photonics. In this work, electronic structure and dielectric properties of small particles of cadmium sulfide on the surface of graphene were studied using the density functional theory. The optical spectrum of this hybrid structure depends on the orientation of the nanoparticle relative to graphene due to the interaction between electrons of sulfur atoms on the surface of the CdS particle and π-orbitals of carbon atoms.
