Thus, back electron transfer can be delayed, and then the duration of off-state events was increased and the lifetime was decreased 18 The calculated results show that the ITO nanoparticles not only reduce the electron transfer rate from excited QD to trap states but also can accelerate the electron transfer rate from the trap states to the ground state of QD.

Nature— Additional Information How to cite this article: ASC Nano 4— The curve with blue open squares is the fluorescence decay of single QD on glass coverslips, and the curve with red open circles is the fluorescence decay of single QD encased in ITO. In general, the rate of NR-AR is much larger than that of radiative decay Furthermore, there still lacks of the qualitative analysis about the blinking mechanism.

Furthermore, an external electron transfer model is proposed to analyze the possible effect of radiative, nonradiative, and singgle transfer pathways on fluorescence blinking.
