Explorations in nanoscale copper indium sulfide: Synthesis, structural analysis, and optical properties of CuInS2 nanocrystals

The work presented in the thesis focusses on the synthesis and optical properties of colloidal Cu-chalcogenide nanocrystals and CuInS2 nanocrystals in particular. Novel synthesis approaches that yield nanocrystals with unprecedented sizes, shapes and/or hetero-architectures are developed, and the properties of these new materials are investigated. Another theme in this thesis are the remarkable opto-electronic properties of nanocrystals of CuInS2and other I-III-VI2 materials, and their origin, which is still under intense debate.
