Quantum dots (QDs), that are semiconducting nanocrystals with quantum confinement effect, have a very large surface area to volume ratio, so their various properties of QDs can be controlled by adjusting their surface landscape. Therefore, research on the surface of QDs has been actively carried out, but unfortunately, research on the surface of InP QD is relatively lagging behind compared to other QD materials (e.g., PbS1, PbSe2). One of the reasons why the surface understanding of InP QDs is lacking is the difficulty to imagine the surface of InP QDs because their surface is composed of too many facets. In this study, we compare facet dependent surface chemistry of InP QDs prepared using aminophosphine as a phosphorus precursor3-5 thus having well-defined surfaces which are composed of only {111} or {110} with {111} facets. These well-defined surface provide more clear information about the surface analysis. Through surface characterization via nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, x-ray emission spectroscopy (XPS), thermal gravity analysis (TGA), we study the facet dependent properties such as the surface ligand density, atomic compositions, and their optoelectronic properties.
