Cadmium selenide is used as a n-type semiconductor and its nanoparticles are used in laser diodes, opto-electronic devices, nanosensing, biomedical imaging and high efficiency solar cells. Since, it is transparent to infrared light, it finds application in photoresistors and windows for instruments utilizing IR light.
