Scientists at the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and Qurv Technologies have significantly developed non-toxic quantum dots for Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) sensors, a key technology with wide applications in robotics, automotive, and consumer electronics, a recent Ars Technica article highlights. Their research, published in Nature Photonics, details the creation of quantum dots from non-toxic materials like silver telluride, overcoming the limitations posed by traditional dots containing harmful heavy metals like lead or mercury. These new quantum dots, crucial for SWIR applications due to their eye-safe nature and ability to penetrate atmospheric conditions, have been successfully integrated into a lab-scale photodetector. The team’s innovation opens the door for safer, mass-market use of these sensors. It aligns with ongoing efforts to utilize quantum dots in various technologies ranging from display screens to encrypted communication systems. The next steps involve optimizing the photodiode performance and exploring alternate surface chemistries to enhance the efficiency of these environmentally friendly quantum dots.
