Colloidal Mn-doped ZnSe nanowires with diameters of 1-3 nm and lengths up to 200 nm were prepared from Li4[Zn10Se4(SPh)16] clusters and manganese stearate. The nanowires exhibit optical properties that depend on size, shape, and doping level. The manganese photoluminescence is slightly polarized perpendicular to the long axis and reaches a quantum yield of 40% after passivating the crystals with a CdSe shell.
