QD Vision Receives $700K
Apr 2009
The Department of Energy has awarded more than $700,000 to Watertown, Mass.-based QD Vision, a developer of nanotechnology-based products for lighting displays. As part of a program to create advanced solid-state technologies, the company was selected for its submission titled, “Quantum Dot Light Enhancement Substrate for OLED Solid-State Lighting.” Its goal is to develop a practical solid-state lighting solution that is power-efficient and emits light with high color qualities.

The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
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.
