U. of Utah Team Draws Prize for New Process to Make 'Quantum Dots'
from The Salt Lake Tribune
Ryan Tucker had never heard of quantum dots when he entered graduate school at the University of Utah last fall. But since starting his master's in business administration program he has been calculating how this material, known to science as semiconducting colloidal nanocrystals, can be manufactured in a new way that would spur vast improvements in photovoltaics, LED screens and fiber optics. Through the U.'s Lassonde New Venture Development Center, Tucker and two fellow business students developed a plan to commercialize a technology U. chemists developed that could dramatically decrease the cost of producing quantum dots, while increasing their quality.
