Abstract
This thesis is comprised of seven sections which I will summarize here. 1. Introduces the study and sets out aims and objectives. 2. Introduces colloidal quantum dots and relevant mechanical concepts. Also serves to present the position of this work being undertaken in the field. 3. The experimental methods used throughout the thesis are introduced and described. 4. Results of preliminary studies performed on 610nm colloidal quantum dots in a PMMA matrix are presented and studied in order to develop an analytic technique to describe the dot behaviour. 5. Using the results of section 4 we show that it is possible to calculate the concentration of the dot solution...
