MIT Researchers Create Best Ever Quantum Dots
2013-02-04 15:37:24

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In the 1980s, scientists discovered very tiny particles that are capable of emitting light when exposed to ultraviolet light. These particles — now known as quantum dots — are made of a semiconductor material and can display light in a wide array of colors depending on the size of the particle. Though these dots initially showed great promise for a number of purposes, several limitations have prevented them from being...

University researchers from SUNY Stony Brook have determined light rays emitted from compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs emit significant levels of dangerous UVC light originating from cracks in the phosphor coatings resulting in damage to human skin cells. SoLux daylight bulbs provide safe alternative. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) January 28, 2013 Due to the implementation of the Energy Independence and Security Act, or what is commonly referred to as the "Light Bulb Law", traditional...

University of Miami researchers are creating fluorescent molecules that can be turned on and off in aqueous environments to visualize activity within cells University of Miami scientists have developed a way to switch fluorescent molecules on and off within aqueous environments, by strategically trapping the molecules inside water-soluble particles and controlling them with ultraviolet light. The new system can be used to develop better fluorescent probes for biomedical research....

UVOST® allows rapid screening of most petroleum-based light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs). Fargo, ND (PRWEB) May 04, 2012 Dakota Technologies introduces the UVOST®, a direct-push delivered sensor that allows rapid screening of most petroleum-based light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs). This tool uses laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technology to immediately detect sub-surface contamination without having to draw samples or wait for lab results. The UVOST responds...

Europium is a chemical element with the symbol Eu and atomic number 63. Europium is named after the continent Europe. It is the most reactive of the rare earth elements. It rapidly oxidizes in air. Europium ignites in the air at around 302 degrees Fahrenheit. It is quite pliable (bendable). Although it was first discovered by Paul Émile Lecoq de Boisbaudran in 1890, it is usually credited to French chemist Eugène-Anatole Demarçay, who suspected samples of the discovered samarium...
