It describes how to make quantum dots, precursors, conditions, and the resulting properties, covering the preparation of II-VI, III-V, and IV-VI semiconductor nanomaterials and other chalcogenides and pnictide
nanomaterials; the synthesis of core/shell quantum dots; ligand chemistry; and the use of single-source precursors in nanoparticle synthesis.

4:15 CAN ANTI-FERROMAGNETISM AND ANISOTROPIC SUPER-CONDUCTIVITY COEXIST IN IRON PNICTIDES
? ** Joseph Newman * and Theja De Silva
First observed in Nb-doped SrTi[O.sub.3] , it is found in Mg[B.sub.2] , various heavy fermions [10, 11], cuprates , and pnictides
 investigated the electronic structure of rare-earth chalcogenides and pnictides
with a self-interaction-corrected local-spin-density approximation within linear muffin tin orbital method along the lines of .
Studies of the internal structure of cuprates and pnictides
led researchers to the idea that a superconductor is a hamburger, in which the electric current flows through the 'meat', while the 'buns' act as a supplier of electrons (Collins, 2009).
Common high-temperature superconducting materials include bismuth strontium calcium copper oxide (BSCCO), lanthium barium copper oxide, yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO), iron pnictides
, and mercury barium calcium copper oxide.
These are the "undoped" parents of the iron "pnictides
", a class of materials that were found to be high-temperature superconductors in 2008.
