NAME

Quantum dots

DESCRIPTION

Quantum dots are crystals of a fluorescent semiconductor material with a diameter of as few as 10 to 100 atoms (2-10 nm). They are used as labels for imaging molecules because of their very narrow fluorescence spectra, brightness and resistance to photobleaching.

82 skos:definition Semiconductors are materials that have a small electronic bandgap. This bandgap prevents current from flowing at absolute zero, but thermally excited charge carriers can begin to flow at higher temperatures. Semiconductors, notably silicon, are at the heart of the modern microelectronics industry, and also have applications in light sources and detectors.

97 skos:definition Sensors and probes are molecules that report the presence of specific ions, molecules or molecular events in vitro or in cells by communicating a measurable signal, often a light-based readout. They may function through selective interaction or attachment to a molecule of interest or undergo conformational changes.
