We report on the one-pot synthesis of InP/ZnSe quantum dots (QDs) using a precursor-based colloidal synthesis in a noncoordinating solvent environment. The structural and optical studies were carried out on the as-prepared InPQDs. The quantum yield of the nanocrystals was recorded as 6% and a 1.4 times reduction in the ratio of trap-related emission to band edge emission was observed on ZnSe passivation of the InPQDs.
