Novel Nanoparticle Production Method Could Lead to Better Lights, Lenses, Solar Cells

Titanium-dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles show great promise as fillers to tune the refractive index of anti-reflective coatings on signs and optical encapsulants (protective coverings or coatings) for light-emitting di­odes (LEDs), solar cells and other optical devices. Industry has shunned TiO2 nanoparticles because they have been difficult and expensive to make, and current methods produce particles that are too […]
