Latest quantum dots Stories
A pioneering study to gauge the toxicity of quantum dots in primates has found the tiny crystals to be safe over a one-year period, a hopeful outcome for doctors and scientists seeking new ways to battle diseases like cancer through nanomedicine.
Kansas State University researchers have come closer to solving an old challenge of producing graphene quantum dots of controlled shape and size at large densities, which could revolutionize electronics and optoelectronics.
Researchers are looking to white-light quantum dots as the future of lighting. White-light quantum dots are ultra-small fluorescent beads of cadmium selenide that are able to convert blue light produced by an LED into a warm white light similar to an incandescent light.
Engineers at Brown University and QD Vision Inc. have created nanoscale single crystals that can produce the red, green, or blue laser light needed in digital displays.
By harnessing quantum dots—tiny light-emitting semiconductor particles a few billionths of a meter across—researchers at the University of Washington (UW) have developed a new and vastly more targeted way to stimulate neurons in the brain.
To the lengthy list of serendipitous discoveries – gravity, penicillin, the New World – add this: Scientists have discovered why a promising technique for making quantum dots and nanorods has so far been a disappointment.
A Rice University laboratory has found a way to turn common carbon fiber into graphene quantum dots, tiny specks of matter with properties expected to prove useful in electronic, optical and biomedical applications.
By nestling quantum dots in an insulating egg-crate structure, researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have demonstrated a robust new architecture for quantum-dot light-emitting devices (QD-LEDs).
Researchers have created the most efficient solar cell ever made based on collodial-quatum-dots (CQD).
