    Wall Street Wonder in The Making! QTMM
    It’s all about a company using quantum dot nanotechnology that the average person doesn’t understand, doesn’t know if you can see it with the naked eye and hasn’t a clue how it is used, what it is used for or what it even is. 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 with their 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 this nanotechnology company that most people know nothing about is going to change how the world develops in ways completely unimaginative to most.
    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, 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 nanocrystal called a QUANTUM DOT that will follow the world-changing technologies like Plastics 1920′s – 40′s, Biotech 1940′s – 60-s, Internet 1970′s – 90′s and now Nanotech.
    The beauty of this quantum dot is its ubiquitous use in so many life changing applications.
    The last press release with NanoAxis using Quantum Materials Corp TQD’s in their Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and depression research was eye opening. http://bit.ly/vIhG4A Multiple applications like that in one sector of one market give creadance to the depth of this technology into the diverse commercial markets opening up. Optoelectronics and the display screens that save energy proposed in the new QDLED for the iPhone 5 [2] 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 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. 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 (although it would be a small amount) is enough to continue generation of power around the clock.

    You can’t say now that you didn’t have a chance to look into what could be the next Wall Street Wonder company with return potentials like Dell, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon had.

    Investigate Quantum Materials Corp – ticker QTMM and follow the company developments, just don’t watch another life time opportunity pass you by. Life is too short waiting for the next one to come by.

    Good luck, health and prosperity in what ever path you choose,

    Bill

  • Solar: Here It Comes [View article]
    "ridiculous amounts of land" - not a problem for Utilities! They have tens of thousands of square miles of unused land under their high voltage power lines. Why is solar so important, think about it. When is the biggest demand for electricity? When do the air conditioners run the most. When the sun is at its peak. When does solar have the most output with the cells currently available? Solar can have a significant impact on the peak load in a utility scale generation capacity. The solar industry as we know it today is about to change dramatically with semiconductors known as quantum dots. One reason is they can now be mass produced to support roll to roll printing of flexible solar cells at the same rate newspapers are printed. Thanks to a company that is currently a Wall Street Wonder in The Making! QTMM

  • Why Solar Power Is Booming but Solar Stocks Are Not [View article]
    Fair enough, there is a lot to be said about startups and them having a 70% failure rate but for the 30% that make it, by the time you read a story in The Wall Street Journal or Forbes or Barron’s, the smart money is already in and scoring profits. The little guy has already lost his chance. See this article for the basis. solterra1.wordpress.co.../

    Solar and Oil don't mix. That new paradigm in solar by Quantum Materials Corp/Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc (QMC/SRT) is down right deadly for the Oil moguls. Their ride for the past 60 years is about to come to an end the next 5-10 years. It won’t happen instantaneously but it will happen. There are several reasons the landscape is going to change in the oil industry. First and foremost is technology. Entering the explosive growth that is about to start in Nanotechnology is for most going to be mind boggling. Hard to comprehend what some of the space sci –fi imaginations are thinking about will be able to come to reality. 3D Holograms, who would have thought. In the future that will be the entertainment theater in which you are right in the middle of all the action. You thought 3D IMAX was something, you haven’t seen anything yet. So if technology gets us to this new level how does that affect the old staple oil? First to be affected is the decrease in real demand, it isn’t going to dry up but it isn’t going to be driven by the oil speculators driving up the price instead of from real demand. Second, most of the large developed countries will be extensively powered from alternative fuels and 80% off the grid. Solar will be the most dominant of the energy sources that will decrease the need for oil initially. Third is Third world countries will drive the demand and resultant price for oil. Power even there for electricity will come from some of the alternative fuels. That leaves a huge demand decrease and drop in oil prices. Fourth, more electric cars will mean more solar arrays for power and less gas guzzlers needing gas. Fifth is economically depressed countries lacking electricity will also cut into the oil profits and demand. They won’t need to use the oil as they start to evolve into productive entities. Power will be cheaper and more reliable locally produced with solar. Sixth, the strategic oil reserve just opening up tells me the government is looking to lower cost replacement oil, if it is even replaced at all in the future. The electricity replacement from solar power will offset the utilities generating costs using oil. Competition in this case will be very healthy for the average customer. Seventh, the Cartel is without leadership that can rule. Hard to get consensus between the members any more. .Aside from the new finds several of the non cartel countries are making their way into the global market. When given an alternative to the oil most will opt for the environmentally friendly product. Make the alternative cheaper, add in that it is the oil pollution solution and it’s a done deal. Overall oil is going to have a hard time holding a candle to solar in the foreseeable future. Oil will always be around but as far as a THE dominant source for generating power and energy, history will write that it’s time has come and gone. Clean nanotechnology trumps dirty oil courtesy of Quantum Materials Corp and its subsidiary Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.

    QUANTUM DOTS and Solar - remember those words.
    "Materials like quantum dots, organic and polymer absorbing layers for solar generation are on the horizon," said Gay, and there are over 70,000 people working these problems, an investment of $3 billion.
    The horizon for QUANTUM DOTS is no longer out of sight, on 6-23-11 it appeared! It's been 20 years in the making and QTMM - Quantum Materials Corp will allow the commercialization of all the quantum dot suppressed industries. Quality, price and quantity are no longer the restraints to commercialization, it is now the imagination at the research centers that is the hold up for new products and uses. Oh yea SOLAR with quantum dots allows the 53% of infrared energy that is not useable with silicon wafer cells to be tapped. Flexible Quantum Dot solar cells are the future thanks to Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. QTMM - See The Light!

  • Why PV Industry Must Focus on Margins, Not Shipments [View article]
    Solar Industries Worst Nightmare to become a reality!
    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 Tetapod 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... 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.!

  • Global Solar Panel Production Grows: The Top 15 Manufacturers to Benefit [View article]
    I wrote this piece, Solar Industries Worst Nightmare solterra1.wordpress.co.../ before I knew this article was about "higher-cost producers will have to develop differentiated business models to stay alive in the long term." The future is changing in quantum leaps and bonds and those that don't embrace it will find themselves going out of business.

  • Can a Disruptive PV Technology Topple First Solar? [View article]
    I agree with greenhornet2727, the closest disruptive technology that will come to market economically is shaping up to be from Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. Their application of Tetrapod Quantum Dots in conjunction with improved mass production efficiencies will bring grid parity in reach without subsidies. Solar is not there nor is it going to get there with the current solar manufacturing processes. QTMM is going to be leading the Flexible Solar Cell Industry into the future.

  • Will Thin Film’s Promise Emerge From Start-Ups or Industrial Giants Like Sharp? [View article]
    Mr. Wesoff,
    I vote for the startups being the future of thin film. Companies like FSLR are going to have trouble making ends meet using the current SI wafer technology. In two years half of the current solar companies will be gone. A perfect example is the joint venture of the three companies above because Sharp sees its needs to change paths. Many won't make it alone in the industry, particularly when subsidies dry up. The reason is the next generation of solar technology is developing. Quantum Dots in thin film applications are the innovative solution. Costly MW size plants costing hundreds of millions to set up as Solyndra did are going to be replaced with GW production plants costing several million dollars. Companies like Quantum Materials Corp and Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc are going to be the new market leaders in the solar thin film industry. Anyone doing their research and homework will see a whole new set of players about to take the field.

  • Three Value Stocks That Appear Ridiculously Cheap [View article]
    Stocks That Appear Ridiculously Cheap
    After the disgusting reversal the markets have taken from their highs I've looked else where, stocks starting at the bottom. For the price of one share of the cheapest stock listed above $8.50 I can buy 120 shares of HGUE. It's a penny stock, must be a piece of crap you say, well GM isn't far off and I'll bet HGUE against GM for a winner in the future for best return on your investment!
    Solterra Renewable Technologies is new and pretty much unknown at this time – they are growing & they are already headed as the Market Leader for the Flexible Solar Power Industry (FSPI). Why?
    Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. recognized this new dimension they entered was the third generation of solar power and named the technology field FSPI.
    They developed the most economical production method for mass manufacturing of high quality Quantum Dots.
    The Solterra Cells generate power 24/7 (Yes, that includes night time) from their extended spectrum quantum dots.
    Their QD ink jetting is applied to light weight flexible thin film materials of various compositions.
    Solterra reduced the manufacturing cost of Cadmium Selenide Tetrapod Quantum Dots by 95% at the same time increased the quality and size standardization for unparalleled consistency.
    They are capitalizing on the economies of scale to reduce the $ per watt installed costs.
    They recognized and capitalized on cutting edge technology to develop it for the commercial market.
    Solterra has international reach and is fostering additional markets.
    Less than nine months old and they have Quantum Dots available to purchase for research projects.
    Solterra is internally diversified and I See The Light for a very bright future.
    I'm not hyping this stock, I'm giving another option for what I believe will be a much better return on your investment. A small interest in the company gets you a lot more shares with a much better return at the price of .07. Remember Dell didn't start out at it's astronomical highs. When was that?
