In this work, photoluminescence from colloidal GaP nanocrystals (NCs) synthesized via a hot-injection method is observed and analyzed. The emission and excitation spectra of the GaP NCs indicate that two transitions, near the direct and indirect bandgaps of bulk GaP, are responsible for the luminescence.
