Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have achieved a breakthrough in the field of nanoscience by successfully altering nanocrystal properties with impurity atoms -- a process called doping "“ thereby opening the way for the manufacture of improved semiconductor nanocrystals. Semiconductor nanocrystals consist of tens to thousands of atoms and are 10,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. These tiny particles have uses in a host of fields, such as solid-state...

Researchers study quantum dots to increase the amount of electricity solar panels produceStudies done by Mark Lusk and colleagues at the Colorado School of Mines could significantly improve the efficiency of solar cells. Their latest work describes how the size of light-absorbing particles--quantum dots--affects the particles' ability to transfer energy to electrons to generate electricity.The results are published in the April issue of the journal ACS Nano.The advance provides evidence to...

A team of physicists in the United Kingdom has taken a giant step toward realizing efficient single-photon sources, which are expected to enable much-coveted completely secure optical communications, also known as "quantum cryptography." The team presents its findings in Applied Physics Letters, a journal published by the American Institute of Physics. Fluorescent "defect centers" in diamond act like atomic-scale light sources and are trapped in a transparent material that's large enough to...

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced the new Quantaurus series of compact instruments for measuring the properties of photoluminescent materials. The new Quantaurus-Tau measures fluorescence lifetimes as short as 100 picoseconds, while the Quantaurus-QY measures quantum yields faster and more easily than the traditional relative measurement method. The combination of these two instruments enables a comprehensive characterization of...

Bochum physicists are constructing 0-dimensional systems Through his participation, the research team from Bochum, Duisburg-Essen, and Hamburg now has succeeded in an energy-state occupancy readout of those artificial atoms "“ using common interfaces to classic computers. This is a big step towards the application of such systems. They report about their findings in Nature Communications. One million instead of individual atoms In principle, the spin of electrons in individual atoms can...

Like snowflakes or fingerprints, no two quantum dots are identical. But a new etching method for shaping and positioning these semiconductor nanocrystals might change that. What's more, tests at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) confirm that etched quantum dots emit single particles of light (photons), boosting prospects for powering new types of devices for quantum communications. The conventional way to build quantum dots"”at NIST and elsewhere"”is to...
