      Undoped and Zn-doped CdSe quantum dots (QDs) were successfully synthesized by the chemical precipitation method. The structural, optical and morphological properties of the synthesized undoped and Zn-dopedCdSe QDs were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV–visible absorption spectroscopy, photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), field emission transmissionelectron microscopy (FE-TEM) and FTIR. The synthesized undoped and Zn-doped CdSe QDs were in cubic crystalline phase, which was confirmed by the XRD technique. From the UV–visible absorption spectral analysis, theabsorption wavelengths of both undoped and Zn-doped CdSe QDs show blue-shift with respect to their bulk counterpart as a result of quantum confinement effect. The highest luminescence intensity was observed for CdSe QDs doped with 4% Zn by PL studies. TEM analysis shows that the prepared QDs are spherical in shape.
