How to make quantum dots

Charlie Dvorchak(apologies if misspelt name) of John Hopkins University walks us through how to make Cadmium Selenide semiconductor nanocrystals, also known as a type of Quantum Dot.

Caution: Cadmium Selenide is dangerous to human health, so be sure to take proper precautions if you choose to work with it.

P.s. Just one cool possible use of quantum dots is a BioLaser.
