Silicon Nanocrystals (image) University at Buffalo Caption This image shows bright light emission from silicon quantum dots in a cuvette. The image is from a camera that captures the near-infrared light that the quantum dots emit. The light emission shown is a pseudo color, as near-infrared light does not fall in the visible spectrum.
