Quantum dot glowsticks could light up future technology

The heart of future quantum devices could be lit up by arrays of tiny glow-sticks, developed by ANU physicists. A group from the Department of Electronic Materials Engineering (EME) manufactured an array of tens of thousands of indium phosphide nanowires and made them glow by incorporating single quantum dot emitters into them. While similar devices have been created before, the team has developed a revolutionary manufacturing...
