Quantum Dots – 7B13.52


  • Quantum dots are small spheres (2-50nm) composed from a semiconductor.
  • The size of the dots determines the wavelength of light that is emitted.
  • Various LEDs are used to show that a minimum energy is required to achieve fluorescence.

Phosphorescence – 7B13.53


  • Shine a blue LED on a piece of “glow-in-the –dark” phosphorescent material.
  • It absorbs the energy and “stores” it and stores it for a long time as the subatomic reactions required to re-emit the light.
