  • QD Vision Awarded DoD Contract
Mar 2012
LEXINGTON, Mass., March 16, 2012 — Quantum dot product company QD Vision Inc. received a $1.38 million contract from the Department of Defense for specialized devices based on electroluminescent quantum dots.

The 12-month program will result in the development of prototype devices that can be tested under real-world conditions and, ultimately, be employed by US forces.

“This award demonstrates QD Vision’s leadership in emissive materials and devices, and combines our strengths in inorganic chemistry, thin-film deposition and electrical device physics,” said Jason Carlson, president and CEO.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
quantum dots
Also known as QDs. Nanocrystals of semiconductor materials that fluoresce when excited by external light sources, primarily in narrow visible and near-infrared regions; they are commonly used as alternatives to organic dyes.
