Quantum dots are nano-sized crystals that are used in displays to produce brighter, more vivid color. Because they efficiently process energy in the form of light, Paul Alivisatos' team at the University of California, Berkeley wants to use quantum dots to capture energy from the sun to develop a new type of solar cell. "Nanotechnology: Super Small Science" is produced by NBC Learn in partnership with the National Science Foundation.
