Quantum dots or QDs are minute-size spherical semiconductor nanocrystals having the property to confine the motion of carriers such as electrons, valence band holes and even excitons in all three axes. QDs exhibit a unique energy-harnessing ability, which can be used for converting energy from various sources such as solar photons into electrical energy. An ideal isolated quantum dot exhibits discrete energy levels, which corresponds to a delta-shaped density of states having no states among the delta peaks.
