Simulations help North and South Dakota researchers decide which technology would make a better solar collector, quantum dot or nanowire A trio of researchers at North Dakota State University, Fargo, and the University of South Dakota have turned to computer modeling to help decide which of two competing materials should get its day in the sun as the nanoscale energy-harvesting technology of future solar panels -- quantum dots or nanowires. Andrei Kryjevski and his colleagues, Dimitri...

The value of quantum dot material will be less than $200 million in 2018 growing to $560 million by 2020. Yet there are immediate opportunities to create and sell higher value-added intermediary products using QDs. Glen Allen, VA (PRWEB) September 24, 2013 Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced the release of its new report, “Market Opportunities for Quantum Dots in Lighting and Displays.” In the report the firm states that quantum dots (QDs) will create significant...

Resonance In 'Artificial Atoms' Control Quantum Communication
2013-08-06 12:26:15

University of Copenhagen - Niels Bohr Institute Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, together with colleagues in the US and Australia, have developed a method to control a quantum bit for electronic quantum communication in a series of quantum dots, which behave like artificial atoms in the solid state. The results have been published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters. In a conventional computer, information is made up of bits, comprised of 0's and 1's. In a quantum...

Tiny Silicon Crystals Could Be Safe For Deep-tissue Imaging
2013-07-31 13:54:50

University at Buffalo Tiny silicon crystals caused no health problems in monkeys three months after large doses were injected, marking a step forward in the quest to bring such materials into clinics as biomedical imaging agents, according to a new study. The findings, published online July 10 in the journal ACS Nano, suggest that the silicon nanocrystals, known as quantum dots, may be a safe tool for diagnostic imaging in humans. The nanocrystals absorb and emit light in the...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
