Abstract

Core/shell CdSe/ZnS quantum dot fluorescence-blinking statistics depend strongly on excitation wavelength. Excitation on the band gap (575 nm) results in inverse-power law "on" time distributions. However, distributions resulting from excitation above the band gap (525 nm) require a truncated power law and are 100 times less likely to display 10-s fluorescence. "Off" time statistics are insensitive to the excitation wavelength. The results may be explained by nonemissive trap states accessed with the higher-photon excitation energies.
