Not to be confused with faux ice cream, Dippn’ Dots, graphene quantum dots aren’t tasty, but made with graphene. The one-atom thick materials can glow, conduct electricity and may be useful in fighting cancer and catching casino counterfeiters, among many other uses. Newatlas.com spoke to Moti Gross, CEO of Dotz Nano, an Australian company that uses graphene to make the tiny point of light instead of cadmium, which is toxic to humans.
“Gross tells Newatlas.com: ‘A quantum dot is basically a micro-sized disc that absorbs UV light, releases it in the visible light spectrum, and we can change the color that’s seen in the visible light spectrum according to the size of the dot.'”
