Fabrication of photoluminescent glass capsules containing high concentrations of uantum dots

Researchers in Japan have developed photoluminescent glass capsules containing multiple CdSe/ZnS core/shell quantum dots that retain their photoluminescence properties. With high emission brightness and the durability of glass, the capsule can be used as a fluorescent reagent in a wide variety of bio-applications, from basic research to clinical applications. Its brightness and durability could make it useful as a phosphor for electronics.
