Abstract

Colloidal semiconductor quantum rods (nanorods) exhibit size tunable absorption and emission spectra with a high oscillator strength in combination with the emission of linearly polarised light [1]. The emission of light polarised along the long axis of the nanorod has been observed on the single particle level, where an individual nanorod can serve as a single photon source [2]. The optical properties of nanorods are desirable for application in optical devices such as white LEDs, solar cells or as fluorescent markers in the life sciences. The ability to predict the polarisation of the light emitted from a nanorod favours them for the use in polarisation selective microscopy.
