ODE TO QUANTUM DOTS

In the world of materials, she is but an infant
Sparked into existence by bright minds
Seemed to have occurred in an instant
She then opened vistas by breaking many binds

Angstroms and nanometers are how she is measured
For she takes up only a miniscule amount of space
Being small is an advantage that is hugely treasured
In science and history she has a very unique place

She comes in so many different hues
Sometimes she can even be fluorescent
Just by slight change in size she can easily go from red to blue
That one can easily take her for being iridescent

Information she possesses and gives out are cherished
Lighting up many a face in the lab and on field
Patents on her many have been filed and relished
Businesses have been built as huge profits she yields

These tiny materials comprising likes of zinc sulfide
She is christened simply as quantum dots
For a really long time she is here to reside
Because applications for her are lots
