Cations perform a quick change

27 January, 2005

Researchers with the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkely Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley have shown that for nanocrystals, the doping process in which one type of positively charged atom, or cation, is exchanged for another, takes place at a much faster rate than for crystals of extended size and is fully reversible, something that is virtually forbidden in micro-sized crystals under the same environmental conditions.
