Inorganic semiconductors, organic emitters and colloidal quantum dots are pushing the LED revolution in lighting and displays. From solar panels and telescopes to laser-surgery tools and fibre cables, many life-changing innovations have arisen from the fundamental discoveries enabled by the exploration (Read more here)
(CNN)Yearn for the warm yellow light of an old energy-hungry Edison incandescent light bulb? Find the white-blue glare of a modern LED bulb too harsh? Quantum dots are about to change all of that. These electronic crystals are so tiny that 10,000 of them span just the width of a human hair. Read more...
ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Even though quantum dot technology goes back the 1980s, it’s not exactly something you’ll find in every household just yet. However, if this year’s Consumer Electronics Show is any indication, the terminology will soon be just as ubiquitous as LED, LCD CFL, CD ROM and countless other technologies that have moved directly out of [...]
It's easier than ever to make big TVs. Each year brings a new record size and price tag for TVs that have stretched into triple-digit inch territory. There's been a simultaneous quest to be the thinnest TV, a metric that's great to chase on phones and tablets, but arguably less important for something most people [...]
