We developed the effective Mn-doping procedure for AgInS2(AIS)/ZnS core/shell nanocrystals (NCs) to exhibit dual photoluminescence (PL) peaks. Although the AIS/ZnS core/shell NCs showed solely a single PL peak at ~530 nm, incorporation of a small amount of Mn as a dopant within the AIS/ZnS NCs resulted in the simultaneous emergence of dual PL peaks at ~500 nm (green PL) arising from AIS/ZnS NCs and ~600 nm (orange PL) from the Mn dopants. Furthermore, we succeeded in significantly increasing the absolute PL quantum yield value of dual emissive AIS/ZnS NCs incorporated with Mn dopants from 10% to 34% after surface passivation with another ZnS shell for the formation of core/shell/shell structures.
