Brilliant glow of paint-on semiconductors (Image 3)
Laser light in the visible range is processed for use in testing of quantum properties in materials in the lab of Carlos Silva, a professor at Georgia Tech’s School of Chemistry and Biochemistry and co-lead on a recent study where researchers uncovered eccentric physics behind next-generation semiconducting materials' potential to transform lighting technology and photovoltaics.
