Researchers have stumbled upon a cheap and simple method to produce graphene particles that shine like quantum dots (Nano Lett., DOI: 10.1021/nl2038979). These small flakes, which are often only two to three layers of carbon atoms thick, could be a less toxic alternative to the metal-based quantum dots that researchers use to image cells, the researchers say.
