Manganese (0.05-9 mol.%) doped CdS nanorods were synthesized via solvothermal route using ethylenediamine (En) and a mixture of En and water as the solvents. The diameters and the lengths of the doped CdS nanorods varied from 40-100 nm and 600-2500 nm, respectively, with change in the composition of the solvents. The broad photoluminescence (PL) emission from the undoped CdS nanorods centered at similar to 535 nm is found to be blue shifted to 516 nm with the incorporation of Mn in the CdS crystal structure. Also increase in the intensity of the PL was noticed in the Mn doped CdS nanorods for both the solvent systems. Maximum PL intensity was observed for 1 mol.% Mn in case of En system and for 0.5 mol.% Mn in case of En/water system, above which quenching occurred as a result of Mn-Mn clustering. EPR study revealed six-line hyperfine splitting for low Mn concentration in both solvent systems. Increase in the Mn concentration caused EPR signal broadening due to Mn-Mn clustering.
