Defects in atomically thin semiconductor emit single photons

Researchers create optically active quantum dots in 2-D semiconductor for the first time; may have applications for integrated photonics

07-May-2015

Researchers at the University of Rochester have shown that defects on an atomically thin semiconductor can produce light-emitting quantum dots. The quantum dots serve as a source of single photons and could be useful for the integration of quantum photonics with solid-state electronics - a ...
