Quantum Dots in Denmark

Noah Huffman, a junior majoring in physics, is studying quantum dots at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) program.

Quantum dots are nano-scale structures made of semiconductors that can emit light on demand. They can be tuned to emit single photons of specific frequencies. The research has applications in quantum computing.
