The 1990s saw incredible progress in the synthesis, characterization, and the beginnings of applications for quantum dots. Dramatic improvements in particle dispersity and quantum efficiency of emission have brought the notion of authentic devices based on these materials closer to fruition. Nonetheless, there is still a need for better synthetic methods for making these materials on a large scale, with less toxic precursors.
