Latest Quantum dot Stories
Using a modern version of open-wide-and-keep-this-under-your-tongue, scientists today reported taking the temperature of individual cells in the human body, and finding for the first time that temperatures inside do not adhere to the familiar 98.6 degree Fahrenheit norm.
Nature knows two opposite types of solids: one that emerges upon compression from a liquid and a second that appears if the pressure on a liquid is reduced.
Quantum dots made from cadmium and selenium degrade in soil, unleashing toxic cadmium and selenium ions into their surroundings, a University at Buffalo study has found.
Modern electronics as we know them, from televisions to computers, depend on conducting materials that can control electronic properties.
University of Toronto researchers have derived inspiration from the photosynthetic apparatus in plants to engineer a new generation of nanomaterials that control and direct the energy absorbed from light.
Observation of a scientific rule being broken can sometimes lead to new knowledge and important applications.
At the smallest scales, magnetism may not work quite the way scientists expected, according to a recent paper in Physical Review Letters by Rafal Oszwaldowski and Igor Zutic of the University at Buffalo and Andre Petukhov of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
This breakthrough in production process not only enables the low cost, high volume production of quantum dots, but also provides flexibility in the choice of materials used to produce the quantum dots including heavy metal free (Cadmium Free) quantum dots and other biologically inert materials. (PRWEB) June 23, 2011 Quantum Materials Corp and the Access2Flow Consortium of the Netherlands today announce that continuous production of Tetrapod Quantum Dots has been achieved using its...
When semiconductor nanorods are exposed to light, they blink in a seemingly random pattern.
New medical technology is showing that Cornell dots may be a potential cancer diagnostic tool.
