It has been shown that quantum dots are submicron-sized structures that are able to confine excitons in one or more directions. Electron confinement in all three dimensions is called “quantum confinement,” and the particles quantum dots (QDs) with a main characteristic of discrete levels of energy not continuous such as in metals.
