There is a tech trend to watch and if you do nothing else in 2010 look into this trend. It is HI Tech science dealing with subatomic particles. Quantum Dot research has developed to the state where they are the next generation of semiconductors. Early phase companies such as Quantum Materials Corp. and Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. are bringing this technology to the forefront of development with innovative uses from flexible solar cells to the energy saving LEDs. This technology is truly revolutionary with uses and applications still being explored that will open doors to advances in medical, aerospace, waste heat recovery, biotechnology & optoelectronics. Jennifer Ouellette in 2003 wrote about the future of quantum dots and that the hold up was being able to produce commercial quantities. She saw the explosive potential as will you when you read the article and very last paragraph about drawing parallels between Quantum Dots and what the Polymers did to the plastics industry. http://www.aip.org/tip/INPHFA/vol-9/iss-1/p14.html
Companies in this field that will produce Quantum dots in commercial kilogram quantities like the Hague Corporation – HGUE renaming to Quantum Materials Corp. are well worth looking at.
The beauty of this new tech trend is the many applications of this new technology. The new CTO for Solterra Renewable Technologies, Dr. Bob Glass, when he was with Sun Microsystems in the 90’s used to give presentations about the advances and technology possibilities, today he joined the Solterra team so he can fulfill his aspirations as they are no longer a dream for the future. He now has the tools at his disposal and the on hands ability to bring those dreams into reality! It was once said over on Motley Fool the secret to making a fortune in the stock market was to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market. This (ticker: QTMM) is one you can’t afford to overlook!
