Separating a single-layer of quantum dots with insulation increases efficiency

Using an atomic layer deposition process, researchers at Harvard University have developed a way to separate individual quantum dots within a single layer with an aluminum oxide insulating layer. The best metaphor is a carton of eggs, with the CdSe/ZnS QDs representing the eggs and the Al2O3 layer representing the cardboard spacers in between them.
