(Invited) Influence of Vibrations on the Emission Properties of Single Graphene Quantum Dots

Abstract : Recent years have shown an increasing number of studies dedicated to new light emitters for diverse applications such as optoelectronics, bio-imaging, and quantum technologies. In this context, graphene quantum dots (GQD) have important assets since bottom-up chemistry allows complete control of the structure, opening the way to wide customization of their electronic, optical, and spin properties [1-3]. The full benefit from these opportunities requires addressing GQD’s intrinsic photophysical properties.To do so, single molecule photoluminescence experiment is a powerfull tool [4]. Here, we highlight the influence of vibrations on GQDs’ optical properties, by comparing optical studies to extensive DFT/TDDFT calculations combined with molecular dynamics simulations. Specifically, we discussed their role in the transitions' oscillator strengths [5]. In order to get deeper in the photophysics of GQD, we investigate the spectroscopy of single GQDs at cryogenic temperatures. In particular, we show a narrowing of the emission lines at low temperature, that allows us to characterize and identify vibrational replicas that are characteristic to GQDs [6]. [1] M. G. Debije, J.
