Brighter and greener nanocrystals: Dr. Amit Sitt took part in an international collaboration that led to a discovery of nanocrystals of high potential to produce high-quality pictures and lighting in electronic devices

International research collaboration between Curtin University, Australia, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Dr. Amit Sitt from Tel Aviv University, leads to the discovery of tiny 'greener' nanocrystals that can be manipulated to produce high-quality pictures and lighting in electronic devices such as televisions.

 

The research, published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, found that the thickness of the tiny rectangular-shaped nanocrystals, called nanoplatelets, could be controlled with atomic precision, and can be used to improve the brightness and color performance displayed on an LCD screen.
