Unexpected Behavior Of Quantum Dots When Combining To Form Molecules

Friday, April 3, 2009 - 15:28 in Physics & Chemistry

A study has demonstrated that the behavior of quantum dots is different from that posited by atomic physics so far, and this is due to the spin of the electron. The study reveals that the behavior of quantum dots (sort of artificial atoms created with semiconductor materials) is different from that of natural atoms in similar conditions, when they combine to form molecules.
