    • Abstract


      A simple electrostatic model is applied to study the solvation energy and localization energy to inorganic semiconductor nanocrystallites trapped in polymer and ion conducting polymer electrolytes. The effective mass approximation has been applied to the system. In the single charge configuration, the dielectric constant of the medium has been identified as the selection criteria for hosting the nanoparticles. Solvation energy has been shown to depend on the host medium and the size of the crystallite.
