UPTON, N.Y., May 13, 2011 — A surface-based assembly of colloidal quantum dots and carbon-based fullerene nanoparticles is producing promising power-generating units for miniaturized electronics. Scientists at the US Department of Energy’s (DoE) Brookhaven National Laboratory said these tiny two-particle systems can convert light to electricity in a precisely controlled way. “This is the first demonstration of a hybrid inorganic/organic, dimeric [two-particle] material that acts as an electron donor-bridge-acceptor system for converting light to electrical current,” said Brookhaven physical...Read full article
