Here physicists describe recent developments in single quantum dot systems, nanolasers with quantum dot emitters, interaction between light and matter in semiconductor nanostructures, semiconductor cavity quantum electrodynamics, and ultrafast phenomena.
Their topics include theory and methods of few-electron semiconductors quantum dots in a magnetic field, the numerical modelling of semiconductor quantum dot light emitters for fiber optic communication and sensing, quantum dots in medicinal chemistry and drug development, sub-diffraction quantum dot waveguides, a unified description of resonance and decay phenomena in quantum dots, studying quantum dots using effective-mass envelope function theory, and the application of quantum dots in organic memory devices.
Although scientists envision quantum dots in a variety of applications, the toxicity of their starting materials could limit their use, notes Ya-Ping Sun of Clemson University in South Carolina.
