Combinatorial Ion Beam Synthesis of II–VI Compound Semiconductor Nanoclusters

The interest in nanostructured materials and their unique properties has increased enormously in recent years. The typical spatial dimension of a nanoparticle lies in the range of a few nanometers and their properties are between those of molecules and the corresponding bulk material. Quantum dots (QDs) are therefore often called “artificial atoms.”
