Claim of US Patent No. 9,303,049

1. A method for manufacturing a nanodot, comprising:
providing a hydrolysable silane, wherein the hydrolysable silane has one or more hydrolysable groups and one or more substituted
or non-substituted hydrocarbon groups; and

performing a one-step heat treatment to hydrolyze and condensate the hydrolysable silane to form a nanodot, wherein the nanodot
comprises:

a core, the core is selected from the group consisting of a semiconductor core or a metal core, wherein the core consists
of a silicon oxide core; and

a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) comprising the substituted or non-substituted hydrocarbon groups, wherein the self-assembled
monolayer is connected to the core by covalent bonds.
