Team Takes Light-Emitting Nanocrystal Diodes Ultraviolet

Description Embedding nanocrystals in glass provides a way to create UV-producing LEDs for biomedical applications, according to a team of nanoresearchers from the U.S. and Italy. The scientists have developed a process for creating glass-based, inorganic light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that produce light in the ultraviolet range.

The work is a step toward biomedical devices with active components made from nanostructured systems. A joint paper describing the work appears in the online Nature Communications
