Abstract [en]

A method for CdSe quantum dot (QD) sensitization of ZnO nanowires (NW) with fast adsorption rate is applied. Photoinduced excited state dynamics of the quantum dots in the case of more than monolayer coverage of the nanowires is studied. Transient absorption kinetics reveals an excitation depopulation process of indirectly attached quantum dots with a lifetime of similar to 4 ns. Photoluminescence and incident photon-to-electron conversion efficiency show that this process consists of both radiative e-h recombination and nonradiative excitation-to-charge conversion. We argue that the latter occurs via interdot energy transfer from the indirectly attached QDs to the dots with direct contact to the nanowires. From the latter, fast electron injection into ZnO occurs. The energy transfer time constant is found to be around 5 ns.
