Developing a Highly Efficient Near-Infrared Colloidal Quantum Dot Imager

An imager with high efficiency colloidal quantum dots that operates in near-infrared waves

The need for high-performance sensors capable of reliably collecting data under different environmental conditions has increased as a result of advances in robotics, autonomous vehicles and computer vision. Imagers operating at near-infrared (0.7-1.4um) wavelengths can collect high-resolution images even in unfavorable or complex atmospheric conditions.

Researchers from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, HiSilicon Optoelectronics Co. Limited and Optical valley Laboratory developed a near infrared colloidal quant dot (CQD). The highly efficient imager has been published in Nature Electronics.

Liang Gao, a researcher involved in the study and a member of the group, said: \”Our group is based at the Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics and HUST and conducts continuous research on CQD devices and materials with Associate Professor Jianbing Zhu.\”
