Quantum Dots Boost Solar Cells
R. Colin Johnson @ eetimes.com discuss about quantum dots applications and how scientists use them to boost photovoltaic output.
LAKE WALES, Fla—Quantum dots are already being used commercially to boost the output and expand the color range of ultra-high-definition televisions, eliminating the need for the rare earth elements for which China as virtually cornered the market. Quantum dots, however, can also be used to absorb light to boost the output of photovoltaics, photocatalysts, light sensors, and other optoelectronic devices according to Brookhaven National Laboratory (Upton, N.Y.)
