A new, cheap, process to make graphene quantum dots

Graphene is proven, yet again, to be a wonder-substance beyond compare.  Rice University scientists have just published an article describing a method to easily and cheaply manufacture graphene quantum dots (nanoscopic specs of graphene that glow when you hit them with light, essentially).  This is good news for the lighting industry and for a number of medical applications, which can make use of the glowing material to improve diagnoses and imaging.
