Winner of the Standing Ovation Award for “Best PowerPoint Templates” from Presentations Magazine. Y. Arakawa and H. Sakaki, Appl. Quantum tunneling is projected to create physical limits to the size of the transistors used in microelectronics, due to electrons being able to tunnel past transistors that are too small. Quantum Size Effect: The properties of matter and light in nanoscale dimensions it is well-known from the quantum theory that are quite different in striking contrast with the macroscopic world. Phys. Lett., 40 (1982) 939. Solutions of quantum dots of varying size. Note that the smaller particles are in the blue solution (absorbs blue), and that the larger ones are in the red (absorbs red). Quantum dot lasers Reduction of threshold current Reduction of temperature dependence Æuncooled operation Increase in differential gain Smaller linewidth enhancement factor Better high-speed performance M. Asada et al, J. Quantum Elec., 22 (1986) 1915. World's Best PowerPoint Templates - CrystalGraphics offers more PowerPoint templates than anyone else in the world, with over 4 million to choose from.

Note the variation in color of each solution illustrating the particle size dependence of the optical absorption for each sample. The effect was predicted in the early 20th century. Its acceptance as a general physical phenomenon came mid-century.
