Nowadays, the effect of temperature on nanocrystal's dielectric has become a routine study while their structural effects on dielectric properties, lacks the attention of researchers. The correlation of different shell arrangement on dielectric enhancement in CdSe based quantum dots, is addressed in this letter. Detrimental impact of surface defects on dielectric properties of quantum dots is investigated and shown that surface defects of bare core increases dielectric loss, dissipation factor and decreases conductivity of the quantum dots. Dielectric properties of quantum dots is evaluated after deposition of different shells and multishells. It is observed that loss factor is declined in core/shell(multishell) quantum dots due to passivation of surface defects and consequently ease in charge carrier tunneling. Higher conductivity of the core/shell and multishell structures has also been demonstrated here. Structural and optical investigation of the quantum dots after shell deposition is also considered.
