Fluorescent CdTe nanocrystal–polymer transparent composites have been fabricated by a combination of aqueous synthesis of nanocrystals, styrene extraction using polymerizable surfactants, and radical polymerization of monomer mixture containing composite nanocrystals. The Figure shows the photoluminescence of transparent CdTe–polymer composites excited by an ultraviolet lamp.
