Researchers Evaluate Thermoelectric Performance of Two Quantum Dot Models

Researchers Evaluate Thermoelectric Performance of Two Quantum Dot Models

Just as alchemists always dreamed of turning common metal into gold, their 19th century physicist counterparts dreamed of efficiently turning heat into electricity, a field called thermoelectrics. Such scientists had long known that in conducting materials the flow of energy in the form of heat is accompanied by a flow of electrons. [More]

European Commission May Allow Use of Cadmium-Based Quantum Dot Technology for Displays

European Commission May Allow Use of Cadmium-Based Quantum Dot Technology for Displays

Cadmium, a toxic substance and carcinogen regulated by the Directive on Restriction of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS) will be allowed in displays of televisions and other electronic and electrical equipment for the European market should draft European Commission regulation pass. The issue will be discussed at an Environment Committee meeting of the European Parliament on 7 May. Parliament has a veto right. [More]
QD Vision Introduces 2mm Wide Quantum Dot Optical Component

QD Vision Introduces 2mm Wide Quantum Dot Optical Component

QD Vision has introduced a 2mm wide quantum dot optic, expanding the market for the industry’s best color to ultra-slim displays such as LCD monitors, all-in-one computers and televisions. The new Color IQ™ optical component represents a 33% width reduction from the 3mm optic, making it the thinnest quantum dot, full-gamut color solution available today. [More]

Direct Coupling of Quantum Dots and Trapped Ions May Help Advance Development of Quantum Computers

Direct Coupling of Quantum Dots and Trapped Ions May Help Advance Development of Quantum Computers

Physicists at the Universities of Bonn and Cambridge have succeeded in linking two completely different quantum systems to one another. In doing so, they have taken an important step forward on the way to a quantum computer. [More]
Quantum Dots Help Sharpen Nanoscale Microscopy

Quantum Dots Help Sharpen Nanoscale Microscopy

The 2014 chemistry Nobel Prize recognized important microscopy research that enabled greatly improved spatial resolution. This innovation, resulting in nanometer resolution, was made possible by making the source (the emitter) of the illumination quite small and by moving it quite close to the object being imaged.
