Abstract:

Nanocrystalline semiconductors are synthesized within a bicontinuous cubic matrix. The nanocrystalline particles may then be end-capped with a dispersant to prevent agglomeration. One typical nanocrystalline semiconductor compound made according to the present invention is PbS. Other IV-VI semiconductors may be produced by the method of the present invention. The method of this invention may also be used to produce doped semiconductors.
