Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Quantum Dots Visualize Tiny Vibrational Resonances

Newswise imageWhen laser light is used to drive the motion of a thin, rigid membrane, the membrane vibrates in resonance with the light. The resulting patterns can be visualized through an array of quantum dots, where these tiny structures emit light at a frequency that responds to movement. The advance is reported this week in a cover article of Applied Physics Letters.
