A RGB Quantum Dot Laser

In beautiful, Science, technology, writing on May 18, 2012 at 10:36 am

A thin film of quantum dots can produce red, green, or blue light. The more you know about lasers, the more radical that statement sounds.

Article I wrote for Optics & Photonics News about the work:
Making an RGB Laser from Quantum Dots.


A short Quicktime movie from the researchers describes the layout of the device and shows it lasing red.
(I suggest watching with the sound turned off.)
