QDot™ PbS (Lead Sulfide) Quantum Dots absorb the light from high energy photons up to near-infrared (NIR) range and re-emit in NIR range. The absorption/emission profiles can be tuned from 800 to 2300 nm, simply by changing nanoparticle sizes from 2 to 14 nm. This material has outstanding light absorption and photoelectrical properties, and is utilised for near-infrared (NIR) or short-wave infrared (SWIR) image sensors. The material is also suitable for X-ray image sensors and infrared LEDs.
For specific application convenience, two lines of QDs are available:
- With specific absorption peak in 800 – 2300 nm range
- With specific emission peaks in 900 – 1600 nm range
QDot™ PbS Quantum Dots have following advantages:
- Optoelectronic device grade QDs to be used in near-infrared (NIR) or short-wave infrared (SWIR) image sensors
- Unprecedented absorption/emission peaks accuracy and reproducibility (up to +/-5 nm)
- Narrow particle size distribution (FWHM of absorption and emission < 100-120 nm, STDV < 5-10%) for higher devices performance
QDot™ PbS QDs can be supplied as a solid paste/powder that is easily soluble in octane or any other non-polar solvents (hexane, toluene, chloroform, chlorobenzene, dichlorobenzene) in a wide range of concentration up to 100-150 mg/mL. Follow the video for the detailed guide how to dissolve the QDot™ PbS powders. PbS QDs in a solution form (octane, toluene or other non-polar solvents) are also available.
