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

Sandia researchers Dale Huber (left) and Todd Monson have come up with an inexpensive way to synthesize TiO2 nanoparticles, which could be used in everything from solar cells to light-emitting diodes. (Photo by Randy Montoya) Titanium-dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles show great promise as fillers to tune the refractive index of anti-reflective coatings on signs [...]

Research Challenge 0: Overarching and spillover research

The “zeroth” scientific research challenge is what we call overarching and spillover research. “Overarching” research is what connects the six main scientific research challenges to SSL technology. SSL technology is itself evolving rapidly, and we devote some effort to understanding this evolution so as to provide guidance for the directions of our inquiry to surmount [...]

Sandia Develops a Synthesis of Quantum Dots that Increases the Quantum Yield to 95.5%

White light-emitting diodes (LEDs) based on blue indium-gallium-nitride (InGaN) LEDs that excite yellow-green-emitting yttrium-aluminum-garnet: cerium phosphors (YAG:Ce, a nonhygroscopic, chemically inert inorganic scintillator) have a cold white emission that can be made warmer with the addition of a red-emitting component. Unfortunately, red emitters that satisfy all criteria for use in solid-state lighting (SSL) applications are [...]
