Quantum dot solids: a new era in electronics?
February 26, 2016

Connecting the dots: Playing 'LEGO' at the atomic scale to build atomically coherent quantum dot solids. (credit: Kevin Whitham, Cornell University) Just as the single-crystal silicon wafer forever changed the nature of communication 60 years ago, Cornell researchers hope their work with quantum dot solids — crystals made out of crystals — can help usher in a new era in electronics. The team has fashioned two-dimensional superstructures out of single-crystal building blocks. Using a pair of chemical … more…
