Abstract:

A theory is presented on radiation effects in cellular devices comprised of small particles such as nanocrystals or quantum dots. The theory explains the surprising discovery that the photoluminscence of quantum dot devices can be significantly more radiation-tolerant than bulk or quantum well-based diodes.
