Quantum Materials Supplies Tetrapod Dots to DoE

Mar 2013
CARSON CITY, Nev., March 29, 2013 — Quantum Materials Corp. (QMC) has developed and delivered customized tetrapod quantum dot samples for applications under development by Department of Energy National Lab researchers.

QMC also will supply customized tetrapod quantum dots to a US government defense-related agency in support of a nanobiological project.

The DoE National Labs, Energy Innovation Hubs and Technology Centers are developing quantum dot and other nanoscale applications in physics and the biological sciences, including solar photovoltaics, batteries and biofuels. An example is its work at Los Alamos National Lab exploring quantum dot-fluorescent proteins in devices using pH-sensitive fluorescent protein acceptors to produce long-lived bioimaging sensors.

QMC offers high-brightness cadmium-based and ecological cadmium-free nonheavy-metal tetrapod quantum dots and can synthesize many Group II-VI inorganic mono or hybrid tetrapod quantum dots.

The company intends to build out its quantum dot production facilities in the US with full commercial production expected in the fourth quarter of 2013.

GLOSSARY
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.
