Connecting the (quantum) dots

Posted by on December 14, 2004

Imagine if your office laser printer could print text the size of atoms, then embed that ink into a writing surface as light as air. That, in a sense, is what researchers at UMR have done with a new "laser writing" technique they have developed. But with this process, the "ink" is a semiconductor that […]
