Online PR News – 01-January-2010 – – Quantum Dots and Solar Cells Market Potential

While solar cells have been around for many years now, it is only recently that the advances made in technology have made it possible for researchers to make solar cells more efficient. A quantum dot is a semiconductor whose excitons are confined in all three spatial dimensions. As a result, they have properties that are between those of bulk semiconductors and those of discrete molecules. They were discovered by Louis E. Brus, who was then at Bell Labs. The term "Quantum Dot" was coined by Mark Reed. ( http://www.bharatbook.com/detail.asp?id=129624&rt=Quantum-Dots-and-Solar-Cells-Market-Potential.html )
