How quantum dots supercharge farming, medicine and solar, too

This emerging category of nanoparticles has futuristic uses far beyond boosting colors on high-end TVs. What if you could grow vegetables in half the time? What if a surgeon could see cancerous cells throughout an entire operation? What if solar panels could become significantly cheaper and easier to make? All of these improvements and more could come in the near future, thanks to the same tech that helps your TV create lavish and realistic colors. Quantum dots in TVs increase efficiency, create wider color gamuts and improve light output, and soon they'll improve image quality even more. But that's just the beginning. From medicine to agriculture to solar energy, quantum dots have the potential to change industries far beyond your television set. Read the full article here.
