Quantum dots and arrays represent the threshold of a new era in electronic, optical, magnetic, and sensor applications. Consequently, there has been tremendous amount of global interest in this technology and several manufacturing methods are now available that can synthesize randomly distributed, polydisperse quantum dots and arrays. These efforts and results thereof confinn the potential. A key technology gap that restrains further development of device applications and rapid comrnercialization is the facile and reproducible manufacture of periodically arranged, monodisperse quantum dots and arrays. This program aims to fill this technology gap. Phase I will establish the proof-of-concept. Phase II effort will seek to scale up, optimize, produce, and qualify prototype devices. Phase III will commercialize the technology. Proposed research will enable a manufacturing technology that can usher in quantum dots and array based electronics and optical devices. The technology can also lead to next generation EM sensors, Gb information storage devices, wireless office components, and ultrafast data transfer over intranets and internet.
