New approach to solid-state lighting

17 July, 2003

In a different approach to creating white light, several researchers at the Department of Energy's (DOE) Sandia National Laboratories have developed what is claimed to be the first solid-state white light-emitting device using quantum dots. In the future, the use of quantum dots as light-emitting phosphors may represent a major application of nanotechnology.
