In this series, Prof. Vogel has made optical properties of nanomaterials very easy to understand. The series covers all the fundamentals related to nanopaticles. A must watch lecture series for those into nanomaterials!

Dr. Jeffrey DuBose from Prof. Kamat's Lab describes the fundamentals of time resolved photoluminescence using Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC).

In this tutorial, Dr. Jeffrey DuBose explains the fundamental principles of Transient Absorption Spectroscopy with the help of literature examples.

The instrumentation of nanosecond and femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy are well-explained in this tutorial.

Stepwise synthesis of CdSe and InP quantum dots is demonstrated in this video from Clean Energy Institute, UW.

Excellent tutorial series on basic anatomy of electron microscopes by Prof. Grant Jensen, Caltech.

Ever wondered what is happening inside your round-bottom flask while making quantum dots? In this talk, Prof. Brandi M. Cossairt has beautifully explained the quantum dot nucleation and growth, with a particular focus on mechanisms beyond the classical regime.
