Semiconductor nano-particles, or quantum dots, with their relatively high quantum yields, narrow luminescence spectrum, outstanding photostability and the ability to tune their optical properties, are ideal for biological tagging applications and a very powerful tool for chemical sensors. In this paper an overview of this rapidly expanding area of research is presented. Additionally, some results are shown, in the framework of optical oxygen sensors, which establish quantum dots as suitable temperature and intensity references for application in luminescence based chemical sensors.
