The old testament idiom, "Can a leopard change his spots?" was a rhetoric question, meant to show that the answer is, no.
But if the new CEO of Dotz Nano (ASX:DTZ) has his way, the answer will be a resounding yes, and it will also turn the business into a global player in the nanotechnology sector.
A quick study on Quantum dots: Quantum dots are tiny particles with diameters in the range of 2-10 nanometers or 10-50 atoms.
They were first discovered in 1980 and are most useful because they emit different colour light, depending upon their size.
They can be mixed into a liquid and 'tuned' to only show a particular colour.
Traditional quantum dots contain environmental nasties, like lead and cadmium, and are expensive to create.
Dotz Nano's technology uses graphene, is cheaper and achieves far greater yield according to the company.
Applications include transistors, solar cells, LEDs, diode lasers, all types of screens from televisions to phones and everything in between plus they can be used in printing and plastics.
Since becoming CEO of Dotz Nano, a few months ago, Uzi Breier he has refocused the business into one that specilizes in tracing, anti-counterfeiting and product-liability solutions.
