New Quantum Dots Hold Potential for Biological Imaging

Most biological tissues are almost as transparent as glass for particular frequencies of short-wavelength infrared light according to MIT researchers.  This research team fabricated tiny particles that are injectable at least into animals. From within the body, these particles emit the penetrating frequencies of short-wavelength infrared. The method may offer …

Prototype Solar Cell Uses 10,000 Times less GaP and Yields Ten Times the Hydrogen with Electrolysis

Researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and FOM Foundation have demonstrated a prototype for a solar cell that separates hydrogen from water using GaP nanowires. The work is described in the journal Nature Communications. Solar electricity can be employed to set off chemical reactions. If such reactions create a fuel, then …
