Photon Glue Enables New Quantum State That Could Mean Better Lighting, Solar Cells

Prof. Steve Forrest and colleagues discovered that light can act as a photon glue that binds together the quantum mechanical properties of two vastly different materials used in electronics. The effect could harness the most useful characteristics from each material for hybrid solar cells and high-efficiency lighting, among other applications. [Full Story]
