Solving the mystery of quantum dot blinking

Research by Los Alamos scientists documents significant progress in understanding the phenomenon of quantum-dot blinking. Their findings should enhance the ability of biologists to track single particles, enable technologists to create novel light-emitting diodes and single-photon sources, and boost efforts of energy researchers to develop new types of highly efficient solar cells.

New advances in the study of silicon structure

Amorphous silicon is one of the key materials in the manufacturing of next-generation solar panels and flat-screen televisions. A recent study has revealed that the energy of amorphous silicon - the state in which it exhibits the greatest stability - is 50% lower than the value commonly accepted until now.

Are electron tweezers possible? Apparently so. (w/video)

Not to pick up electrons, but tweezers made of electrons. A recent paper demonstrates that the beams produced by modern electron microscopes can be used not just to look at nanoscale objects, but to move them around, position them and perhaps even assemble them.
