14 November 2013 Colloidal Quantum Dot Optoelectronics and Photovoltaics

Prof. Gerasimos Konstantatos co-edits a book published by Cambridge University Press. Over the course of the past ten years, the development of colloidal quantum dots has progressed enormously. This technology is predicted to revolutionize the optoelectronics industry, with the first commercial products based on this material platform having already been launched in the field of lighting and displays and more in the field of image sensing and solar cells just around the corner.

Nest Fellow and Professor at ICFO Gerasimos Konstantatos and Prof. Ted Sargent from University of Toronto have summoned a group of world renowned experts in their corresponding fields to edit a book published by Cambridge University Press on \"Colloidal Quantum Dot Optoelectronics and Photovoltaics\". The book presents the fundamentals of colloidal quantum dots from their chemical synthesis and assembly to their optical and electronic properties. It then moves on to present the most significant scientific advances in the fields of light emission, light detection and solar harnessing that have underpinned the major technological advances seen to date.
