Abstract

We report a simple, solution-based, postsynthetic colloidal, atomic layer deposition (PS-cALD) process to engineer stepwise the surface stoichiometry and therefore the electronic properties of lead chalcogenide nanocrystal (NC) thin films integrated in devices. We found that unlike chalcogen-enriched NC surfaces that are structurally, optically, and electronically unstable, lead chloride treatment creates a well-passivated shell that stabilizes the NCs. Using PS-cALD of lead chalcogenide NC thin films we demonstrate high electron field-effect mobilities of ∼4.5 cm2/(V s).
