Application of semiconductor nanocrystals in optoelectronic devices requires an understanding not only of their emission and absorption properties, but also of the processes of charge injection and transport in nanocrystalline films. Here, we present measurements of the electrical properties of nanocrystalline films and of blends of nanocrystals with conjugated polymers. We also describe the attachment of nanocrystals to semiconductor surfaces, and we investigate the emission of nanocrystalline films in microcavity structures and at high excitation intensities.
