This synthesis was performed using modified Hot-Injection method. The CdTe/CdSe core-shell QDs have been characterized by the transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with the aim to control the QDs shape and the average size. The optical absorption and photoluminescence (PL) spectra are investigated in four samples obtained at different reaction times (5, 10, 15 and 20 s) of core growth after the CdSe passivation of the CdTe cores. Obtained results have shown that synthesized QDs have a good crystallinity, spherical shape and bright emission at 610 nm. The reaction time enlargement permits increasing the average size of CdTe/CdSe core-shell QDs, together with "red" shifting the PL wavelength and increasing the PL intensity. The advantages of synthesized CdTe/CdSe core/shell QDs are discussed.
