Ball-bearings for the 21st century

Abstract:
Quantum dots will be to this century what ball-bearings were to the last - the unseen enablers of a new era of human invention. So says Paul O’Brien, head of chemistry at Manchester University in the UK and founder of a company called Nanoco that manufactures these nanometre-sized lumps of semiconductor. O’Brien believes that the firm’s manufacturing process can be used to make large quantities of quantum dots for a range of applications in medicine, security and electronics.
