Abstract

We report the synthesis of copper iron sulfide (wCuFeSw(2)) quantum dots (QDs). These materials exhibit a tunable band gap that spans the range 0.5-2 eV (600-2500 nm). Although the as-prepared material is nonemissive, CuFeS2/CdS core/shell structures are shown to exhibit quantum yields that exceed 80%. Like other members of the I-III-VI2 family QDs, CuFeS2 based nanoparticles exhibit a long-lived emission that is significantly red-shifted compared to the band gap. CuFeS2 QDs are unique in terms of their composition. In particular, these QDs are the only band-gap-tunable infrared chromophore composed entirely of elements with atomic numbers less than 30.
