Doping 2D Layered Materials with Quantum Dots Could Help Design Better Optoelectronic Devices

Doping 2D Layered Materials with Quantum Dots Could Help Design Better Optoelectronic Devices

Harnessing the power of the sun and creating light-harvesting or light-sensing devices requires a material that both absorbs light efficiently and converts the energy to highly mobile electrical current. Finding the ideal mix of properties in a single material is a challenge, so scientists have been experimenting with ways to combine different materials to create "hybrids" with enhanced features.
