Thin Films Make Certain QDs Glow Brighter

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Using thin-film metal oxide substrates for quantum dots could turn them into more efficient light emitters. A team at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the University of Oklahoma probed the behavior of four types of quantum dots (QDs) manufactured by chemical synthesis. Some had protective shells; others did not. In addition, some of the dots had cores made of binary materials, while others had ternary-material cores. The researchers found that ultrathin aluminum oxide made quantum dots glow brighter. The effect was much stronger in QDs that did not have protective...Read full article
