Colloidal quantum dot laser diodes are just around the corner

Los Alamos scientists have incorporated meticulously engineered colloidal quantum dots into a new type of light emitting diodes (LEDs) containing an integrated optical resonator, which allows them to function as lasers. These ...

Sandwich structure of nanocrystals as quantum light source

Excited photo-emitters can cooperate and radiate simultaneously, a phenomenon called superfluorescence. Researchers from Empa and ETH Zurich, together with colleagues from IBM Research Zurich, have recently been able to create ...

Scientists roll 2-D cadmium telluride into nanoscrolls

A team of scientists from the Faculty of Chemistry and the Faculty of Materials Science, MSU, together with foreign colleagues, discovered that two-dimensional sheets of cadmium telluride can spontaneously fold into nanoscrolls. ...
