New Quantum Dot-Based Invisible Ink Could Increase Security of Encoded Data

Ciphers and invisible ink – many of us experimented with these when we were children. A team of Chinese scientists has now developed a clever, high-tech version of “invisible ink”.

Quantum Dots Show Promise for Deep Brain Imaging

Quantum Dots Show Promise for Deep Brain Imaging

New research has shown quantum dots can be used to map neural networks in the brain by allowing neural signals to be visualised in real time. This breakthrough will allow further insight into neural communication in both normal and abnormal brains.

Fool’s Gold Quantum Dots Significantly Enhance the Charging Speed of Batteries

Fool’s Gold Quantum Dots Significantly Enhance the Charging Speed of Batteries

It has shown that the addition of fools gold quantum dots to lithium batteries facilitates ultrafast charging that works over multiple charge cycles. Previous attempts to achieve this gave batteries that only performed well over one or two cycles.
