Quantum dot is an artificial atom

Quantum dots

Quantum dots are structures in the nanometer range that have so far only been known from semiconductor materials (InGaAs, CdSe, GaInP / InP). The peculiarity of a quantum dot is that, as charge carriers, they are limited in their spatial mobility and their energy can therefore not assume continuous, but only discrete values. They behave like atoms, only that quantum dots can be varied in shape, size and number of electrons.

The following list contains information sources available online on the physics and chemistry of quantum dots. Further information in English can be found under the bullet point quantum dots. See also: Sources of supply and manufacturers of quantum dots.
