Quantum dot technology deemed beneficial for the environment
The European Commission has granted an exemption to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS 2) Directive for Electrical and Electronic Equipment, confirming that QD Vision’s Color IQ quantum dot technology is beneficial for the environment.
Quantum dots enable spray-on wide-spectrum PV cells
Load bearing structures that are also electronic or electrical are called structural electronics. This two-for-one approach can be more reliable, attractive and long-lived and saves space. With a vehicle, saving weight also reaps dividends, such as when devices and circuits are applied experimentally to an electric car or plane that travels much further on a single charge as a consequence.
Government announces investment in quantum technologies
A consortium of universities and businesses is set to bring innovative quantum technologies to market soon. The futuristic technologies include cameras which use just a single pixel to see through smoke, imaging systems which can time light to see around corners and miniature structures to create earthquake warning systems.
CCD improves camera's quantum efficiency
Signalling an expansion of the Grasshopper3 GigE Vision PoE camera line, Point Grey has released a 9.1MP CCD (Charge Couple Device) model. The Grasshopper3 GS3-PGE-91S6 model is based on colour and monochrome versions of the 1” Sony ICX814 global shutter CCD sensor, which features 3.69µm pixels and 3376x2704 pixel resolution.
Detecting Majorana particles for next-gen quantum computing
Researchers from the University of Surrey and the Ben-Gurion University in Israel have uncovered a new method to detect Majorana particles. Previous attempts to find the elusive Majorana particle have been promising without providing definitive and conclusive evidence of its existence.
