In the last two decades, semiconductor quantum dots-small colloidal nanoparticles-have garnered a great deal of scientific interest because of their unique properties. Among nanomaterials, CdTe holds special technological importance as the only known II-VI material that can form conventional p-n junctions. This makes CdTe very important for the dev

About the Editors

Yury Rakovich received his diploma in physics from Belarusian State University, Belarus, and PhD in physics from the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Belarus, in 1995. He worked as a lecturer and associate professor in physics at the Brest State Technical University, Belarus, until 1997 and moved to the University of Minho, Portugal, in 1998. He joined the School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin in 2001, where he worked as a senior research fellow at the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN). Since 2010, he has been an Ikerbasque research professor leading the experimental nanophotonics group at Materials Physics Center, San Sebasian, Spain. He is also a part-time professor at the University of the Basque Country. Dr. Rakovich's current research focuses on optics of microcavities and photonic molecules, nanophotonics, semiconductor nanocrystals, organic nanomaterials, and plasmonics.

John F. Donegan received his BSc and PhD from the National University of Ireland, Galway. He had postdoctoral periods at Lehigh University and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart. He was appointed to the academic staff in Trinity College Dublin in 1993. He leads the Semiconductor Photonics Group and is also a principal investigator at the CRANN research institute in Trinity College Dublin. His research is in the area of photonics, in particular the interaction of light with photonic structures: microspheres and photonic molecules coupled with nanocrystal emission, tunable laser structures based on slotted lasers, and two-photon absorption microcavity structures.
