In the last two decades, the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology has witnessed tremendous advancement in the synthesis and application of group II-VI colloidal nanocrystals. The synthesis based on high temperature decomposition of organometallic precursors has become one of the most successful methods of making group II-VI colloidal nanocrystals. This method is first demonstrated by Bawendi and coworkers in 1993 to prepare cadmium chalcogenide colloidal quantum dots and later extended by others to prepare other group II-VI quantum dots as well as anisotropic shaped colloidal nanocrystals, such as nanorod and tetrapod. This dissertation focuses on the chemistry of this type of nanocrystal synthesis. The synthesis of group II-VI nanocrystals was studied by characterizing the molecular structures of the precursors and products...

The electromagnetic properties of subwavelength metallic surfaces are due to two kinds of elementary distinct waves, the famous surface plasmon polariton and the quasi-cylindrical wave, which are both scattered by the subwavelength indentations as they propagate on the metal. The ab-initio microscopic description of the electromagnetic properties starting from the sole knowledge of the elementary waves launched in between the indentation has a long history in grating theories. We review the evolution of the ideas and the fundamental principles that govern these waves and their impacts. For the sake of illustration, the emblematic case of a metal surface perforated by a subwavelength-hole array, which exhibits remarkable transmission properties, is taken to illustrate our purpose.
CdTe tetrapods have been deposited on a substrate and partially coated with a protective polymer layer, exposing just one arm. The exposed arm was then decorated with Au nanoparticles in a site selective fashion. The modified arms were readily broken off from the remainder ofthe tetrapods and released from the substrate, yielding CdTe nanorods asymmetrically modified with Au nanoparticles. These nanostructures with reduced symmetry may show interesting optoelectronic properties.
