Semiconductor colloidal nanocrystals with characteristic sizes of a few nanometers are important model objects for the investigation basic physical processes under strong size quantization of the electronic states. A variety of their shapes, sizes, chemical compositions and surface properties provides applications in optoelectronics, photovoltaics, biology, and medicine. Their spin properties remain weakly investigated, but already presented experimental and theoretical results confirm that the spin-dependent processes may strongly modify optical and magneto-optical properties of the colloidal nanocrystals and open new fields for their functionalization.
