Chemists go ‘back to the future’ to untangle quantum dot mystery

Chemists go ‘back to the future’ to untangle quantum dot mystery

December 12, 2017

For more than 30 years, researchers have been creating quantum dots – nanoscale semiconductors with remarkable properties. But quantum dot synthesis has occurred largely by trial and error. Thanks to the work of two Rochester chemists, that may be about to change.

‘Holy Grail’ of Hydrogen Fuel

‘Holy Grail’ of Hydrogen Fuel

November 8, 2012

Work by a group of graduate students and chemistry professors is advancing what is sometimes considered the “holy grail” of energy science: lowering the cost while increasing the output of sunlight-powered hydrogen-production systems. The solution: nanocrystals and nickel catalysts.
