We describe the creation of CdSe/ZnS quantum dot assemblies using layer-by-layer construction strategies, using self-assembly. In the first approach, a dithiol linker was used to make multilayers of CdSe/ZnS quantum dots, while in the second biotin- and streptavidin-conjugated CdSe/ZnS quantum dots were used to make multilayer constructs. Both the chemical bonding nature and fluorescence spectroscopic properties of quantum dot films were characterized using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and fluorescence spectroscopy.
