Unusual nanoparticles could benefit the quest to build a quantum computer. Imagine tiny crystals that “blink” like fireflies and can convert carbon dioxide, a key cause of climate change, into fuels. A Rutgers-led team has created ultra-small titanium dioxide crystals that exhibit unusual “blinking” behavior and may help to produce methane and other fuels, according to a study in the journal Angewandte Chemie . The crystals, also known as nanoparticles, stay charged for a long time and […] The arrows point to titanium dioxide nanocrystals lighting up and blinking (left) and then fading (right).
