New atomic-scale computer simulations of how quantum dots “talk” to each other could lead to a wide range of practical applications ranging from quantum computing to green energy.

The research was done by Pascal Krause and Annika Bande at the Helmholtz Centre for Materials and Energy in Germany and Jean Christophe Tremblay at CNRS and the University of Lorraine in France, who modelled the absorption, exchange, and storage of energy within pairs of quantum dots. With further improvements to the model, the use of quantum dots could be expanded to include a diverse array of real-world applications.
