Scientists have been making nanocrystals in the lab since the 1980s.
Silicon nanocrystals (ncSi) produced by current methods are polydisperse, meaning that producing them results in particles of different sizes at the nanoscale--from one to 100 nanometres --with one to five nanometres showing the greatest quantum effects.
Selenium rather than cadmium is used to track the nanocrystal areal density due to the excess cadmium that is present.
Because the nanocrystals can be tuned not only to emit but also to absorb a wide spectrum of colours of light, they could enable a new kind of broad-spectrum solar cell.

We are pleased to have this opportunity to broaden biological and clinical applications for fluorescent nanocrystal products.
In this paper, the effects of a nanocrystal ZnO on thermal degradation or crosslinking of several polymers were investigated in comparison to a conventional micron-size ZnO and also a common antioxidant.
We forecast the total market size in 2021 to be US$136 billion, with a 60/40 split between nanocrystals and nanocarriers respectively.
