Semiconductor nanocrystals(NCs) with size-tunable luminescence are one of the most interesting materials capturing the interest of researchers over the past decades, and have broad applications in biological imaging, drug delivery, light-emitting devices, solar cells, photo-detectors, and quantum computing. Doping of transition metal ions into semiconductor NCs is a thriving area of nanomaterials because it can introduce new optical, electronic, and magnetic properties into host NCs. The physical properties of a doped NCs are strongly influenced by the dopant site inside the host lattice, which determines the host–dopant coupling from the overlap between the dopant and exciton wavefunctions of the host lattice.
