We summarize our correlated scanning tunnelling microscopy and optical spectroscopy investigations of the electronic level structure and single-electron charging effects in CdSe quantum rods. Both optical and tunnelling spectra show that the level structure depends primarily on rod diameter and not on length. With increasing diameter, the bandgap and the excited state level spacings shift to the red. The level structure is assigned using a multi-band effective-mass model. The tunnelling spectra also exhibit, depending on the tunnel-junction parameters, single-electron charging effects that yield information on the degeneracy of the electronic states.
