Nathan Stott Named Materials Director at Quantum Materials
SAN MARCOS, Texas, Jan. 6, 2016 — Quantum Materials Corp. has named Nathan Stott director of materials as the company ramps up production in response to increased adoption of quantum dots (QDs) for displays.
"As one of the foremost leaders in research on quantum dots, Nathan brings a wealth of knowledge and proven experience to the company," said Stephen Squires, founder and CEO. "His innovative work in chemistry, material science and nanotechnology and its application to consumer electronics is invaluable as we begin commercializing our technologies."
Stott most recently worked on developing QDs for the LED lighting industry in leadership roles with Seoul Semiconductor. Prior to that, he was responsible for development of high-quality semiconductor nanomaterial down-convertors for integration into solid-state lighting, and was project lead for green QD emitters at Pacific Light Technologies Corp. Stott also performed research in positions at the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, Samsung and Cabot Corp.
Stott has a doctorate in physical chemistry (nanomaterials) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Arizona. He is an inventor on multiple patents, primarily focused on development of QDs and their use in lighting and displays, and has published numerous articles on nanotechnology.
Quantum Materials Corp.'s QDX quantum dots allow display manufacturers to enhance display optics and increase color gamut and resolution while reducing overall manufacturing cost. The QDs offer high-heat resistance and are mass-produced through automated processes to assure uniformity, stability and performance.
