WHAT ARE QUANTUM DOTS?

Quantum Dots (QDs) are extremely small semiconductor nanocrystals that glow specific colors based entirely on its particle size, when stimulated by electricity or light.  Given their energy efficiency and infinite color possibilities, the applications for QDs range widely from displays and lighting to solar panels and biomedical applications.

Navillum Quantum Dot Instructional Kit

Quantum dots are a fun and colorful way to introduce nanotechology, as well as demonstrate traditionally intimidating science concepts in high school and college levels.  For example, it can be used to illustrate the physical concept of colors as light energy in the form of waves with distinct wavelengths. It is also an excellent tool for demonstrating quantum phenomena in advanced courses. The size-dependent spectral properties of Quantum dots can be measured quantitatively and illustrate the particle-in-a-box theory of quantum mechanics. Teaching materials and simple hands-on activities using Quantum dots have already been developed with support from the National Science Foundation. Learn more.
