Abstract

: Nowadays, as a result of the emergence of low-dimensional hybrid structures, the scientific community is interested in their interfacial carrier dynamics, including charge transfer and energy transfer. By combining the potential of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) and nanocrystals (NCs) with low-dimensional extension, hybrid structures of semiconducting nanoscale matter can lead to fascinating new technological scenarios. Their characteristics make them intriguing candidates for electronic and optoelectronic devices, like transistors or photodetectors, bringing with them challenges but also opportunities. Here, we will review recent research on the combined TMD/NC hybrid system with an emphasis on two major interaction mechanisms: energy transfer and charge transfer. With a focus on the quantum well nature in these hybrid semiconductors, we will briefly highlight state-of-the-art protocols for their structure formation and discuss the interaction mechanisms of energy versus charge transfer, before concluding with a perspective section that highlights novel types of interactions between NCs and TMDs.
