What is it about?
Quantum dots are nanostructures that provide saturated brightness but due to defects present within them, the performance of the QD deteriorates. One way to avoid this problem is to place them along with semiconductor and metal nanoparticles so that the defects get filled quickly by the path provided between QD and nanoparticles. This work provides new insights into achieving better performance of QDs.

Why is it important?
Quantum dots are an excellent candidate for many applications and have provided a breakthrough in the field of optoelectronics. But these nanostructures are prone to a serious problem of flickering or blinking of the bright light emitting from them. This work tries to reduce this severe problem with advanced approaches and thus contributes to increasing the efficiency of the devices incorporating QDs.
