Rainbow of Quantum Dots

Using some very nice physics scientists are able to manufacture quantum dots less than ten billionths of a centimeter wide that fluoresce any colour of the rainbow. Fluorescence works on the absorption of light and the re-emission of light in a narrow band of wavelengths; in the cases of quantum dots this is achieved through altering the size and shape of the dots. At current new developments in quantum dots are set to make the next generation of TVs have amazingly sharp, bright and vivid colours and who knows where it will go from there.
