New Paper on Silicon Surface in JPC C

Check out Yinan’s most recent paper in JPC C.  It describes our study of silanol groups on the surface of silicon nanocrystals.  We find that the conical intersections in such systems are high enough in energy not to quench visible light photoluminescence.  This is the first time the we have used analysis of conical intersections to show from first principles that a surface is well passivated against non-radiative recombination.
