Quantum Dots – What’s it about?

March 3, 2014

QUANTUM DOTS – WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

It’s about Quantum Materials Corp. (OTCQB:QTMM) a nanotechnology company that can make copious amounts of quantum dots. If you never heard of a quantum dot you are not alone. The average person doesn’t understand, know if you can see them with the naked eye, how they are used or what they even are.

Quantum dots are man made crystals 10,000 times smaller than a human hair, thus smaller than human cells. Their special electrical conductivity properties have generated a new class of semiconductor. These unique nanocrystals, also known as nanoparticles, are creating quite a stir in several industries because the technology applications are across a broad spectrum and you may remember the growth of companies like Intel, Samsung and Texas Instruments that were making semiconductors. Quantum Materials Corp. makes Quantum Dots which are the next generation of semiconductors.

Why invest in quantum dots? Think of what has changed the shape of the future for the world in the past. The wheel, smelting, gunpowder, plastics, Biotech and computers may come to mind. Now add Quantum Dots! Why? Because quantum dots (QDs) have completed the transition from a once curious demonstration of quantum confinement in semiconductors to an exponential expansion of applications ranging from fluorophores providing unique insights in biological investigations to multi-exciton generation (MEG) in solar cells.

I first read in Motley Fool a statement and loved it because it is so true, So, I’ll relay it again “the secret to making a fortune in the stock market is to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market.” You’ll want to remember that and invest for the future in nanotechnology. One company that meets the criteria as a growth business that will dominate a mass market is Quantum Materials Corp (OTCQB:QTMM) with their QDX Tetrapod Quantum Dot’s (TQD). They have multiple uses in a wide array of applications in many different sectors…not just solar, medical and visual displays. Those were the primary reasons that I invested in this stock in the 1st place and as more and more uses for quantum dots are discovered every day, it re-enforces that I made the right decision….”it’s the same as having ‘a diversified portfolio , all in one stock‘.”[1]

An investment in nanotechnology and in particular Quantum Materials Corp. is essential! This nanotechnology field that most people know nothing about is going to change how the world develops in ways completely unimaginative to most, as seen in the incomplete chart above, i.e. waste heat recovery and flexible solar cells not addressed.
Tissue welding with lasers during surgery, selective cell isolation to eradicate cancers, solar cells with up to 65% efficiency, displays that pop with vibrant colors, power consumption 50% less than existing means, 3D TV’s that could go into the realm of holographic realism[3],  clothing and paints that change color with the whim of your desires. Sounds far fetched?
So was Dick Tracy’s 2 way wrist radio/TV watch in 1964, precursor to cell phones today. The Quantum Materials Corporation developed the method to mass produce a nanoparticle called a QUANTUM DOT that will follow the worldchanging technologies like Plastics 1920’s40’s, Biotech 1940’s60s, Internet 1970’s90’s and now Nanotech 2016 – ?.
The beauty of this quantum dot is its ubiquitous use in so many life changing applications.
A previous press release with NanoAxis using Quantum Materials Corp TQD’s in their Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and depression research was eye opening. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2011/9/prweb8794822.htm Multiple applications like that in one sector of one market give credence to the depth of this technology into the diverse commercial markets opening up. Optoelectronics and the display screens that save energy for handhelds, computers, billboards and TV’s, to the household light bulbs will all use Quantum Dots. Anything that has color associated with it is a candidate for QD use. How broad is that? And the amazing part of this is it goes both ways. Not only do quantum dots give off vibrant light in every visible color spectrum but they absorb light in every spectrum to generate electricity. Solar cells will power devices 24/7. This day and night production of electricity uses solar cells that generate power from the ultraviolet thru visible, to the infrared lighting range to produce their power. To be more descriptive, sunlight at zenith (climax or high point) provides a radiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet radiation. The wafer type solar cells available today can only process visible light. That leaves out over half of the energy available from IR and the remainder in the UV. 56% of the available energy to be converted to electricity is LOST using today’s solar cells. In the future using the Solterra Renewable Technology flexible solar cell you will be able to capture that lost energy in the IR and UV region. And what is really exciting about this new Nanotechnology with Tetrapod Quantum Dots is it’s absorption capability 24 hours a day! Like enhanced night vision goggles the IR at night (although it would be a small amount) is enough to continue generation of power around the clock. Indoors (day and night) the lighting will be recycled to generate power with solar floors.

Is it going to happen tomorrow? NO! (See 2017 update below) ‘Quantum Dots (QD)’ is the latest and the most advanced part of semiconductor nanoparticles, which, currently, are at the pre-commercialized stage.[4] All developing technologies of significance take around 20 years to come to fruition. QD technology and products are no different, hitting the 37 year mark this year, taking a little longer. The quantum dot industry is going to go through a mega growth period and that is one of the problems currently facing the manufacturers. The mega market hasn’t arrived and is another two to three years away, and that is a good thing because the current manufacturers like Nanoco and Nanosys couldn’t support an explosive growth demand. They are struggling just to make their current quotas now. QMC on the other hand is posturing and aligning resources to be able to support the mega market growth when it arrives full force as evidenced in the press releases below. QMC patented a continuous manufacturing approach using a microfluidic-reactor. Their small reactor produces 250 kg of tetrapod QDs per year, or 250,000g per year. QMC’s first of several commercial scale micro-reactors of 2000kg/yr was operational June of 2015.  QMC produces in 20 minutes what has taken ten days to produce in the past. (Click HERE to see actual production) Colloidal batch synthesis methods to manufacture QD’s in gram quantities by the other manufacturers will not support the explosive commercial market needs for thousands of grams per day. Batch synthesis is too costly, time consuming and a large overhead is required. That will cut the field of approximately 22 players down significantly. For investors the field is even smaller, the public traded companies manufacturing QD’s are very limited, 2-3. Those public traded companies have fixed production capacity which restricts their ability to support commercialization of products and that brings us back to the quote above,”the secret to making a fortune in the stock market is to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market.” Quantum Materials Corp. using their proprietary microfluidic-reactors will easily be able to expand to support demand from the industries mega growth potential. The question is will the microfluidic-reactor manufacturer be able to keep up with the units needed to support a mega growth demand in time, or will the company have to go to shift work around the clock, 7 days a week until additional units arrive? Reality is the microfluidic-reactor supply will not be an issue for Quantum Materials Corp.. They have been diligently working with the manufacturer to address this continuously building growth demand and can contract out to others if needed.

Update for 2017, It’s almost three years later and the market is about to explode going into 2017. Samsung, the only manufacturer producing Quantum Dot TV’s for Christmas 2016 couldn’t keep up with the demand. Discount stores like Costco and BJ’s were selling out, picture quality and color rendition is beyond any thing else on the market, yes, quantum dot TV’s are that good!  The last two years delay is attributed to a change of product design. The display industry demanded a Quantum Dot that was environmentally friendly, in other words, Cadmium free, to comply with world wide RoHS restrictions. Cadmium is a heavy metal that has great performance characteristics that were hard to match in the Cadmium free arena, thus the significant delay to market. Now that that has been overcome as demonstrated at CES 2017 last week “Quantum Materials Corp to Present Heavy Metal-Free Quantum Dot Display Film at 2017 Consumer Electronics Show” we should in the near future, possibly as early as the Quantum Dot Forum on March 15 – 17, 2017, see the start of the mega growth cycle we talked about above.

You can’t say now, after three years, that you didn’t have a chance to look into what a Quantum Dot company is about with return potentials like Dell, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon. I suggest you investigate further Quantum Materials Corp – ticker QTMM and then if you decide not to invest at least follow the company developments. You can always change your mind later, just don’t watch another life time opportunity pass you by. Life is too short waiting for the next one to come by. Remember by the time feature magazines and newspapers like Barron’s, Forbes or The Wall Street Journal start covering breaking technology companies like Quantum Materials Corp. , the most potential for maximizing profit has already slipped past you and out your wallet!

Good luck, health and prosperity to you.

Bill Leigh Investing wisely!

How to avoid being misled or ripped off by Solar Marketers

April 24, 2011
  • Every day we are being misled or getting ripped off by some unscrupulous sales man trying to make his commission, bonus or quota. Being caught in  the “Close” is about the salesman using the technique effectively. The Solar industry is continuously  mis-representing efficiency to you,  the customer about to spend 5, 10, 20, 40 thousand for a system. How? By telling you their efficiency is the best. But what you don’t know is it may be for a short 1-2 hour period or even minutes at the PEAK efficiency. The rest of the time it’s not so good. So your overall efficiency levelized over 24 hours is, well pretty dismal.

That’s right they don’t want “off peak” to make a levelized playing field for EFFICIENCY over a 24 hour period. Makes sense to some degree. The sun doesn’t shine at night, unless you count reflecting moon beams. It’s awfully dark on a cloudy night, not to mention some hellatious thunderstorms have turned day into night, it’s that dark. And overcast days don’t help with enriching that tan you managed to acquire baking in the sun. But I do remember getting burnt on cloudy days at the beach. Must have been my imagination, a wind burn, that is what it was, a wind burn. Or was it something else? I remember some one mentioning UV. I can’t see it or feel it like the sun rays, so that couldn’t be it, or could it?
We are entering a new phase, a paradigm shift for the energy industry. Customizing your longitude and latitude characteristics to the generation facility for your power. UV, IR, and VL all come into play some time during the day and night. Visible light (VL) is pretty obvious as well as the Ultra Violet (UV) , that ‘s why we wear our sunglasses to protect our eyes from UV, not because we look good in them. And then the IR, what is infrared (IR)? It’s complicated to explain as you will see from the Wikipedia definition: “Infrared Technology is based upon (IR) light that has electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength longer than that of visible light, measured from the nominal edge of visible red light at 0.7 micrometres, and extending conventionally to 300 micrometres. These wavelengths correspond to a frequency range of approximately 430 to 1 THz,[1] and include most of the thermal radiation emitted by objects near room temperature. Microscopically, IR light is typically emitted or absorbed by molecules when they change their rotational-vibrational movements. “ Got that? Well to put it more in the terms of how it is used in solar applications they go on to say:
Sunlight at zenith (climax or high point) provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy, 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet radiation.[2]”. The wafer type solar cells available today can only process visible light. That leaves out over half of the energy available from IR and the remainder in the UV. 56% of the available energy to be converted to electricity is LOST using today’s solar cells. Tomorrow using the Solterra Renewable Technology flexible solar cell you will be able to capture that lost energy in the IR and UV region. And what is really exciting about this new Nanotechnology with Tetrapod Quantum Dots  is it’s absorption capability 24 hours a day! Like enhanced night vision goggles the IR at night is enough to continue generation of power around the clock. So when someone tries to sell you on their solar cell being the most efficient, ask them to tell you the 24 hr energy absorption and overall efficiency rating for the panel. That will stop them dead in their tracks and ask them what is their LCOE?
LCOE is the Levelized Cost of Electricity over the life of the power generating facility. Starts from construction costs and runs to disposal, a “cradle to grave” cost in which to compare overall generating cost. The lower the LCOE the better you are. Now you have something tangible to compare.

Solar Industries Worst Nightmare to become a reality!

October 19, 2010

If we were to take the solar manufacturers hundreds of millions of dollars of capital investment and tell them their investment is now worthless, do you think they would be upset? Well many of their old processes being time consuming, very costly, extremely complicated and excruciatingly cumbersome are about to be just that, dinosaurs of the past! Welcome in the new age of light weight solar cells from nano particles, in particular a nano-scale crystal called a Tetrapod Quantum Dot (TQD). This microscopic particle carries property characteristics that are still unknown to man. Every day universities around the world are discovering new functions, applications and additional properties. What is known is they shed a whole new light on many subjects, literally. Dr. Jabbour the Chief Science Officer (CSO) for Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. has been researching their use in: “flexible-roll-to-roll-electronics and displays, smart textile, moisture and oxygen barrier technology, transparent conductors, organic light emitting devices, organic and hybrid photovoltaics, organic memory storage, organic thin film transistors, combinatorial discovery of materials, nano and macro printed devices, micro and nanofabrication, biosensors, and quantum simulations of electronic materials.” Dr. Jabbours research studies have led to the development of Solterra’s high speed production line for printing solar cells at a rate of 300 m2 per minute .*1 In the near future the Tetrapod Quantum Dot LED is destined as the light of the future along with the display applications currently being worked on by many companies like Sanyo, LG and Panasonic for more vivid and enhanced color displays for the TV’s. All from these Quantum Dot’s., but that’s the future. The now is in solar to reduce green house gas emissions and our carbon foot print as Steven Squires CEO of Quantum Materials Corp. see’s a more universal benefit from quantum dots. He wrote, “Quantum Dot (qdot or QD) solar tech is the only viable solution to satisfy the world’s energy demands without placing the earth and all its inhabitants in peril in the process.” *2 His vision of a cleaner environment is echoed by many around the world.

It is widely known that solar isn’t the only answer to this carbon foot print problem. Solar is currently one small part but it will have such a monumental impact on the quality of life around the world that it is the most important energy source at this junction of time. Third world countries with starving poor will be able to grow crops in previously un-irrigated lands. Uninhabitable land can be turned into an oasis. Salt water can be turned into fresh water when there is a power source.  Electricity is a powerful tool for those without it. We take for granted our lights will always be on from the utility companies providing us power. Just what if they didn’t? How will you survive, no hair dryer, frozen food, home shopping channels or football games to watch. You get upset now if you lose power for a couple hours in a storm, imagine days, weeks turning into months. Kind of unimaginable but with the amount of vengeful hate, some not so stable people carry around with them, it isn’t unrealistic now a days and who knows what the future holds. Supplemental solar power, if you aren’t capable of going off the grid completely will become a way of the future. All this will be brought about by the mass production of economical solar cells without subsidies. The solar cell manufacturers WORST nightmare will become a reality thanks to a company called Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.!

QTMM (Quantum Materials Corp) is to the Nano technology field what Amazon.com is to the discount retail field and very few are aware of this.

That is about to change in the next couple months. Quantum Materials Corp has developed a way to mass produce economically the Tetrapod Quantum Dots. This significant breakthrough allows what no other company has been able to do to date and that is provide commercialization of the QD’s to the various industries in kilogram quantities economically. The subsidiary Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. is bringing the solar phase of nanotechnology to the forefront.  Solterra will be producing and distributing a Thin Film Quantum Dot PV Solar Cell which is differentiated from other PV cells by a unique technology that results in lower cost, higher efficiency, and broader spectral performance. Solterra’s Quantum Dot Solar Cell achieves a dramatically lower manufacturing cost per watt because no vacuum equipment is required, no expensive silicon is required and low-cost screen printing and/or inkjet techniques are used on inexpensive substrates. Secondly, the Solterra Thin Film Quantum Dot Solar Cell has the potential to generate multiple excitons from each proton providing the potential for exponential improvements in conversion efficiency. Third, Solterra’s PV cell is not only more efficient in the early morning and late afternoon compared to crystalline silicon PV cells, but it also has the potential to harvest light energy in the infrared and ultraviolet spectra. Solar power at night!

This QD 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. Are you willing to risk loosing out on the next technology revolution that’s been in the making for some twenty years? At least put it on your radar screen to monitor.  Investing in QTMM may make your chance to retire early a possibility or at least a little more luxurious! IMO QTMM is a global play that’s about to pay.

Why would I want to invest in this company Quantum Materials Corp – QTMM?

November 23, 2009

Did you know McDonalds was going to become, or Microsoft was going to become, or QVC was going to become the household names they did?  How could you have known they were destined to be staples of the American economy? Everyone has hind sight but few have foresight. If only I had a way or someone to direct me on how to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market. I don’t have a crystal ball but I can tell you to read and you may start to get the picture of the future.

Steve Squires is QTMM/Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.’s CEO. This is his take on the future of Quantum Dots & Solar power from Quantum Dots, look at the Oct. 2009 issue, pages 56, 57 & 58   Use the “zoom ” feature on the bottom of the page to see clearer text. This is a visionary article.

 http://www.interpv.net/ebook/ebook_03.asp

What he doesn’t tell you is there is a lot more potential from Medical http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=43821676, Waste Heat Recovery (Could be as big as solar) http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=43767056, Biotechnology, Semiconductor http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/04/090401102946.htm, Optoelectronics, Military and Aerospace research fields and finally, OLED/LED’s http://news.prnewswire.com/DisplayRe…5066582&EDATE= . What was that about identifying a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market?

AND the (now not so) latest update 12-2-09 is Dr. Bob Glass joins Solterra as CTO to assist in taking this Quantum Dot & Solar company with its developing array of products into the future. http://twitter.com/drbob999  Dr. Glass has EXACTLY what this company needed as a startup. STARTUP EXPERIENCE and TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE. Director of Science at Sun Microsystems in the 90’s the technology he talked about then is the reality that SOLTERRA has today!  Dr. Glass is no charlatan, as CTO he is bringing a wealth of corporate development experience with him. Check out the company web site EOU.COM.  http://www.eou.com/aboutbob.html

This was my take months ago before the name change and still is, only with a more solid foundation,  ,  QTMM is to be a global play that will pay

https://solterra1.wordpress.com/2009/06/15/hgue-re-inventing-solar-with-solterra-renewable-technologies/

Many more announcements and developments have taken place since writing this article.  You should check out the company site under press releases. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the progress and probably a little disappointed you didn’t see this months ago. http://www.qmcdots.com/

QTMM – RE-INVENTING Solar with Solterra Renewable Technologies

June 15, 2009

UPDATE – The references to the company name Hague, ticker – HGUE  were changed in April 2010 to Quantum Materials Corp, ticker – QTMM  

Whether you’re in college starting to invest or an old time investor, Solterra should be in your portfolio as they develop into a market leader for the Solar and Nanotechnology Industry! The reason I say that is from an article written by Jennifer Ouellette in Artificial atoms illuminate biotechnology and other fields. Her closing paragraph is: “Exactly where quantum dots will find their biggest commercial breakthrough remains to be seen, but the initial biotech applications will surely pave the way for others. And for those engaged in their sale and manufacture, there is no denying their market potential. “I think we are on the verge of a commercial breakthrough similar to what polymers did to the plastics industry,” says Talbot. “This material has so many different uses that it could be a fundamental new material system for a whole host of products that touch on almost all major areas of modern life.” Solterra is economically producing these Quantum Dots and making them available for research in various industries. http://en.wordpress.com/tag/quantum-dots-for-sale/

I’ve been researching this company for several months now and it is still not on the radar screen while they execute their business plan and build infrastructure. HGUE is a good risk to rewards ratio investment that you have to at least consider as an investor. At .10 cents it’s pretty much a no brainer that a little money goes a long way to securing a potentially very nice return!  The first half of the year they kept a low profile for some reason without announcing they had made significant progress. That changed when they broke the silence with press releases that started on 6-4-09, 6-10-09,  6-16-09,  etc. Before that there was only an ASU press release about Solterra and Nitto Denko that Solterra never mentions. You can now see from the press releases this company has the right products and management to blossom into one of those companies that raises the phrase, “If only I knew”. Well consider yourself advised and do your DD. This emerging market leader (HGUE – Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.) is a company with unique value propositions to set it apart. It is in the forefront of the new Flexible Solar Power Industry that will replace the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Now that they’ve announced they are spinning off Solterra from HAGUE and are persuing  involvement with the European Supergrid Initiative it should be even more interesting!  See 6-10-09 and 6-16-09  press releases.

Since June, Hague has continued to move forward. They announced additional ventures on July 27, 2009 covering screen-printing techniques for the fabrication of organic light emitting diodes. August they announced they are going to use the Access2flow production process to allow commercial manufacturing of Quantum Dots. September 17th they presented their business plan to Venture Capitalists at the 7th Annual Rice Alliance Energy & Clean Technology Venture Forum at Rice University.  November 9th & 10th they are presenting in Saudi Arabia at the Kingdom Project Expansion & Investment Summit.

Solterra is embarking on its journey into the fast path of technology leadership as a market leader in Solar and Quantum Dot production.  CEO Stephen Squires has taken two of the top research scientists in their fields and combined their innovative scientific contributions to create the next generation of solar cells for the industry. DR Jabbour at ASU is working on the light weight thin film panel sheets that will make unrealistic pipe dreams economically possible using the Quantum Dots Dr. Wong developed at Rice University. Solar as we know it today isn’t going to be leading any charge in the future, the future is in the economical mass production of Tetrapod Quantum Dots like Solterra is developing. This nanotechnology will lead the 2010 and on revolution in the Solar applications. Solar power production 24/7 (yes at night) is the future. Silicon cells haven’t produced energy in the infrared and ultraviolet range which these extended spectrum Quantum Dots do. Is the future bright for Solar? For the investors and companies engaged in the next generation of products for solar it is very bright I believe.

Solterra is the only public traded company with this innovative technology that private investors can BUY at a reasonable price. First Solar is out of touch price wise and Solyndra, Heliovolt, Nanosolar, and Kanarka are private companies only institutions can invest in. They all have state of the art equipment with less of a quality Quantum Dot and have received massive institutional funding. The people in the know, know there is money to be made in the Solar Industry, not to mention the potential market for organic light emitting diode displays alone is estimated to exceed $4.5 billion, according to Global Industry Analysts, Inc..

I first checked Solterra out when I was in Phoenix for my daughters wedding on 2-14-09 to confirm the reality and feasibility of this company. I work too hard for my money to throw it away. I don’t work for, nor am I affiliated with Solterra. I bought shares of their stock only and would like to introduce others to their potential. My enthusiasm and comments don’t necessarily represent management’s views, I think their views would be a little more biased.  Again, do your own DD to confirm mine. The costs to install solar systems is what Solterra is helping reduce to the tune of 90% less for the solar cells. This innovative and much more profitable Quantum Dot technology is replacing the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Solterra has extraordinary potential given the product addresses medical industry needs as well and is not limited to just the solar arena. Quantum Dots are also used in the Semiconductor Quantum Dot (SQD) industry, Optoelectronics, Military and Aerospace research fields but that is not Solterra’s focus right now.  Solterra is concentrating on the Solar field that is in the process of being spun off from the HAGUE Corp. The Hague Corp will be the Quantum Dot manufacturer, maybe one of these others will be an off shoot division in the future too. That off shoot consideration happened July 27. 2009 as stated in the press release. The Quantum Dots stability and reproducibility at a significant cost reduction with the high quality Tetrapods developed by Dr. Wong is their foundation. The beauty of this is the application of the Quantum Dot to produce the flexible solar sheet is by a modified ink jet printer!  Solterra’s QD ink for jetting machinery and the flexible sheet are two of the innovative developments for the next generation of low cost efficient power and the beginning of the Flexible Solar Power Industry. Now in addition, the Organic LED / OLED based displays have the potential to be manufactured by HGUE using very high volume, low cost roll-to-roll print processing on inexpensive substrates.

Billions will be allocated and made during the transition from oil to alternative energy sources and Solterra will be one of the significant contributors as a market leader. The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) recently published an article stating that from the expected growth for electric power (even with the economical down turn) they project by 2030 the nuclear utility industry will have to increase by 25% to meet demand and that an additional 6.7% will be from renewable energies. I work in the nuclear industry and can tell you the last plant built to come online was in 1990. NOT one nuclear plant has been built in the US since for commercial power production. Our company went from leading, to a wait and see for new next generation nuclear construction. 25% has to come from somewhere! More good news for Solterra is the North Carolina Senate passed Bill 3 (SB-3 as will many other states) requiring by 2018 that utilities have 10% of their energy generated from renewable energies such as Solar, wind, geothermal, etc.. Thus the requirement to either purchase more costly power from other suppliers or build generating units. The Bad News – YOU HAVE TO PAY for it whether you like it or not, even though they could sell you lower cost fossil fuel generated electricity. Jones-Onslow EMC in North Carolina has in their letter “Purchasing renewable energy is approximately 2 to 3 times more expensive than traditional generation and developing and implementing energy efficient programs will require additional capital investments.” The Good News is Solterra Renewable Technologies is making Solar power affordable with their highly advanced Nanocrystal Quantum Dots technology in their Thin Film Photovoltaic Solar Cell flexible sheets. Also, in light of the recent political changes SOLAR has become the main stream choice since the Nuclear path has been set back with the loss of Federal funding for Yucca Mountain as a depository for waste fuel. Wind power is not economical on a cost basis and startup costs are more than fossil fuel generators. Besides from noise and eye pollution the blades are an environmental hazard to the birds when the wind is blowing. Hydrogen fuel cells and ocean waves – that stuff is a long way off before it can be widely used, and most of the companies developing the technologies are small and hard to invest in. Solterra’s continued execution of their vision and plan will benefit the environment and those that invest. This stock is a global play that will pay!!!

Re-inventing Solar

April 19, 2009

UPDATE – The company name Hague, ticker – HGUE  was changed in April 2010 to Quantum Materials Corp, ticker – QTMM the parent company of Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.

Welcome to Solterra Renewable Techologies, Inc (HGUE). They developed an innovative technology that is in the forefront of a new Flexible Solar Power Industry. This innovative and much more profitable Quantom Dot technology is replacing the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Solterra has extraordinary potential given the product addresses medical industry needs as well and is not limited to just the solar arena. The Quantum Dots they manufacture can be used  for research in the biological, electroluminescent, solid state and Semiconductor Quantum Dot (SQD) fields.. Solterra’s new ”’proprietary”’ Quantum Dot (QD) technology is more economical, more energy efficient and stable, has a broader spectral performance and ”’Solterra reduced the cost of Q.D. production by more than 90%”’  This significant cost reduction of the high quality Tetrapods developed by Dr. Wong at Rice University is their foundation. The beauty of this is the application of the Quantum Dot to produce the flexible solar sheet is by a modified ink jet printer!  The Quantum Dot flexible solar sheets are the next generation of low cost efficient power and the beginning of the Flexible Solar Power Industry.  Billions will be allocated and made during the transition from oil to alternative energy sources and Solterra will be one of the significant contributors. In light of the recent political changes SOLAR has become the main stream choice since the Nuclear path has been set back with the loss of funding for Yucca Mountain as a depository for waste fuel. Wind power is not economical on a cost basis and startup costs are more than fossil fuel generators.

Hydrogen fuel cells and ocean waves – that stuff is a long way off before it can be widely used, and most of the companies developing the technologies are small and hard to invest in. Solterra’s continued execution of their vision and business plan will benefit the environment and those that invest. This company is a global play that will pay!

Significant 2009 PRESS RELEASES:

Saudi Arabia just completed DUE DILIGENCE on HGUE for one of several mega SOLAR project contracts using their Quantum Dot technology.    http://twitthis.com/rwvtzy

 

 2 companies for 1 investment!

That’s right, buy HGUE now and any time up until the filings and get a percentage of Solterra, the second company FREE! This is based on “It is anticipated that upon the closing of this private financing Hague will retain a substantial equity interest in Solterra.” Kind of like AT&T spinning off LUCENT, only in a mini form. That should translate as a minimum into for every two shares of HGUE you’ll get one FREE of Solterra. That’s pretty much what the press release is saying when you read in between the lines. Either way it’s a good risk to rewards ratio that you have to at least consider as an investor. At .10 cents it’s pretty much a no brainer that a little money goes a long way to securing a potentially very nice return!  PRESS RELEASE  http://twitthis.com/5j63dw

It was also very good news to learn the Quantum Dots will be the first positive cash flow generator for the company in the very near future and addition testing showed the generation of 20 percent more electricity than conventional crystalline products
