August 18, 2011 – BUSINESS WIRE — The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense (DoD) awarded QD Vision Inc. $900,000 to advance their quantum dot (QD) based infrared (IR) materials and deliver two prototype devices. The R&D is expected to take 12 months.
QD Vision is tasked with creating a prototype device using quantum dots as an emissive layer in an electronic device (electroluminescent application) and another in a film that is activated by external light sources (photoluminescent application). The company has previously demonstrated a quantum-dot-based display, and proprietary printing method to fabricate QDs.
QD Vision has worked with DARPA before as a prime contractor. To learn more about QD Vision’s Government Business, visit www.qdvision.com/government-contracts.
