A new update to Quantum Dots.

Vanderbilt University Research

This is really promising, particularly in the lighting business. If they can successfully encapsulate the enhanced quantum dots (or even at a higher level of fluorescent efficiency), then we're really in business on a whole range of items.

A big topic of discussion is battery weight. What if the size/weight reduction comes instead in the lighting element, with the potential for considerably lower power consumption as a bonus?

Applications toward the development of optical computing using light pulses?

Just something to pay attention to down the road.....
