SNL researchers use quantum dots for solid-state lighting

In a different approach to creating white light several researchers at the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories have developed 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.
