Following the (nano)dots
Byron Ballou was irritated. The biochemist had just injected some fluorescent particles into the tail of a restrained and anesthetized nude mouse, but he had botched the job. Now, way too many of the particles, called quantum dots, were circulating and the mouse's tail was glowing brightly. It was only later, reviewing video of the experiment, that Ballou realized something remarkable had occurred.
