University of Utah Startup Could Go Big with Tiny Dots

from The Salt Lake Tribune

"It wasn't planned." In 2005, Jacqueline Siy-Ronquillo began researching quantum dots — manmade semiconductor nanocrystals that emit light — for her doctorate in chemistry at the University of Utah. "We were trying to understand the stability of quantum dots and their behavior when subjected to different environments," Siy-Ronquillo said as she stood near a bank of test tubes in a small lab in the Henry Eyring Building on the U. campus. By 2008, the nature of Siy-Ronquillo's work had changed, thanks to a "chance discovery." "They were studying something very basic," said her husband, Nikko Ronquillo, "and she stumbled upon a process to make quantum dots in better fashion than anybody else can." more
