Colloidal semiconductor magic-size clusters (MSCs) differ significantly from conventional quantum dots (QDs) in many respects. For example, when samples are extracted from a single reaction batch, MSCs are characterized by a constant and persistent absorption peak position, while the absorption peak position of QDs redshifts due to their growth in size. Furthermore, MSCs exhibit relatively narrow optical bandwidth, compared to corresponding QDs, attributed to relatively uniform size distributions. However, little is known about the structures of the MSCs. Here, I will present our latest advances on a selective two-step approach to various single-ensemble MSCs, which are not complicated by the presence of QDs. In the first step, a pre-nucleation stage sample is obtained, which is transparent in optical absorption. In the second step, MSCs are formed from the first-step sample at relatively low temperatures, such as room temperature, either by incubation or by dispersion in a solvent. Using ZnSe as a model system, I will demonstrate that the formation of MSCs starts with the self-assembly of the cation and anion precursors. Furthermore, I will present the various MSCs obtained from our selective two-step approach, which is obviously different from the conventional hot-injection and heating up approaches. Hopefully, the presentation will facilitate mutual interest on the exploration of the structure-property relationship of MSCs.
