A simple, low-temperature method can be used to prepare thin films of highly luminescent, infrared-emitting nanocrystals in an IR-transparent solution-cast matrix (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja2087689). The study, led by Maksym V. Kovalenko and Dmitri V. Talapin at the University of Chicago, may lead to methods for making low-cost waveguides and other . . .
