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.
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?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
