NP size: correlation with photoprocess efficiency
Compound Mean NP size (nm) CW Mean NP size (nm) ns Mean NP size (nm) fs
Ag 10 to 20, ME
CdS 4 to 8, HE 3 to 8a, LE 2 to 3, LE
Au 5 to 15, HE 20, HE
PbS 8 to 11, HE 4 to 8, HE

aAccording to [24]: pore size, 7 nm, precursors Cd nitrate + ammonium thiocyanate.

HE, high efficiency; ME, moderate efficiency; LE, low efficiency.
