In previous scanning quantum dot microscopy work, however, we had to move to an individual site on the sample, measure a spectrum, move to the next site, measure another spectrum, and so on, in order to combine these measurements into a single image.
Incidentally, so-called "QLED" TVs have been around since last year, but these don't use QD-LEDs, which are electro-emissive: the quantum dots are stimulated to emit photons by electrons.
