R&D Helps Overcome Limitations of GQDs in Energy Storage Applications

Graphene quantum dots (GQDs) are gaining attention as nanomaterials consisting of a monolayer or a few layers of graphene having excellent and unique properties. The application of bare and functionalized GQDs in sensor, energy storage, and biological fields is grabbing the attention of companies in the quantum dot sensor market. However, there is a lack of research to ascertain its precise structure-property relationship. As a result, GQDs lead to significant inhomogeneity in surface functionality and dimension.

In order to overcome the limitations of GQDs, companies are collaborating with scientists and researchers to realize the correlation between the synthesis process dependent size variation and optical properties. As such, advanced methods are being used for careful handling and manufacturing of graphene as well as its derivatives.

Ease of Manufacturing Quantum Dot Sensors

  • Silicon-based sensors have difficulties in manufacturing next-generation image sensors. The major disadvantage of silicon is that it fails to capture light more efficiently.
  • Light emission and/or absorption materials have varied applications in phosphors, lasers, sensors, LEDs, displays, solar cells, photodetectors, and medical imaging devices. Quantum dots of semiconductor materials have a direct bandgap that provides efficient absorption and emission, along with spectral tenability from blue to red through size selection.
  • New quantum dot sensors use the quantum dot technology and a simple integration method that captures the maximum portion of an image with extremely high quality. In addition, Quantum Film is the next-generation camera platform. Hence, Quantum Film in mobile handsets and cameras, and other applications have increased demand for small, high-performance image quantum dot sensors.
