Cadmium selenide quantum dots of different radii were synthesized using Horizontal Vapor Phase Crystal (HVPC) Growth Technique. Fluorescence quenching is the sensing mechanism utilized in the study. The synthesized CdSe quantum dots were used effectively in the optical sensing of copper ion concentrations
