Abstract

Quantum dots (QD) are zero-dimensional materials, which can confine electrons and exhibit quantum mechanical behavior. Quantum dots are considered as a special class of semiconductor whose energy gap and energy levels spacing depends on the size of the particles. Due to this we can observe many interesting electronic properties of quantum dots.
