The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has announced the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2023 to three scientists Mongi Bawendi, Lewis Bruce and Alexey Ekimov for their work on quantum dots. Quantum dots are very small particles and their size determines their properties.
Quantum dots are present in television screens and LED lamps
Quantum dots have unique properties and are also present in television screens and LED lamps that emit bright light. These nanoparticles speed up chemical reactions and the bright light they emit helps surgeons in tumor surgery. Researchers have used quantum dots mainly to create colored light. He believes that in the future, quantum dots can contribute to the manufacturing of flexible electronics, small sensors, thin solar cells.
