Nanocrystals Embedded in Glass Emit Light in UV Spectrum

Post Time:Mar 02,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:98

A process to produce light in the UV spectrum has been developed by a group of multinational researchers. This process produces glass-based, inorganic LEDs that emit light in the UV spectrum.

Embedding nanocrystals in glass provides a way to create UV-producing LEDs for biomedical applications

Since, these LED-based lights are cost effective and have chemical stability; they can be used in biomedical and ecological diagnostics. However, acquiring UV emission is quite difficult. This difficulty has been overcome by the new process.

The fabrication process was developed by Sergio Brovelli from Los Alamos National Laboratory in association with a group of scientist, headed by Alberto Paleari, from the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy.
