Fabrication and characterization of solid PbI2 nanocrystals.

Lead iodide nanoparticles are synthesized in reverse micelle solution of AOT/H2O/n-heptane. Optical absorption spectra and TEM analysis indicated the formation of crystalline particles with an average radius of 1.5 nm, which is less than the Bohr radius of the exciton (1.9 nm) in bulk PbI2. Using th...
