Influence of Environment and Temperature on the Luminescent Properties of ZnCdS Nanoparticles


Dependence of the luminescence spectra of the non-stabilized ZnCdS nanoparticles placed in a biological environment on their temperature is investigated. It is shown that the intensity and the position of maximum luminescence of surface defects ZnCdS nanoparticles depends on the temperature and the properties of the biological environment until it is denatured.
