Abstract

Link and gain: A series of donor-bridge-acceptor systems in the form of core/shell CdSe/ZnS quantum dot-bridge-fullerene heterodimers (see picture) with varying bridge length and varying quantum dot size were self-assembled by a surface-based stepwise method to demonstrate control of the rate and of the magnitude of fluctuations of photoinduced electron transfer at the single-molecule level.
