Deployment of quantum dots ... and stability

I'm interested to read that quantum dots are already being deployed in TV systems. It is gratifying to see innovations making it into the marketplace.  I'm curious to know how stable the quantum dots are for anti-counterfeiting purposes.  What environmental extremes can they tolerate?

I believe quantum dots are very stable in a wide variety of environments, and the distincive shape of the tetrapods makes them easy to identify. Of course, there are lots of other shapes that coud be used too, especially for the anti-counterfeiting app.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
