Cyclic voltammetry has been used to investigate the interaction between reduced graphene oxide (r-GO) and CdTe quantum dots (Q-CdTe). For that, the composite of Q-CdTe with r-GO (r-GO-CdTe) was prepared by carrying out the reduction of graphene oxide and the synthesis of Q-CdTe simultaneously, in a single bath. r-GO-CdTe was characterized by UV–visible, steady state fluorescence, time-resolved fluorescence, X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Cyclic voltammetry was employed to determine the quasi-particle gap and band edge parameters of Q-CdTe and r-GO-CdTe. The blue shifts in the quasi-particle gap of r-GO-CdTe have been attributed to the strong interaction of graphene with CdTe. These interactions were further verified by time-resolved fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy which suggested strong electronic coupling between Q-dots and graphene.
