DoD orders quantum dot electroluminescent devices from QD Vision

March 14, 2012 — The US Department of Defense (DoD) awarded QD Vision Inc. a $1.38 million/12-month contract for specialized devices based on electroluminescent quantum dots. The program will result in prototype devices that can be tested under real-world conditions, to ultimately be used by US armed forces.

Quantum dot technology developed at QD Vision can be used in display and lighting applications; the DoD is not revealing its specific application/s under this contract. The award combines QD Vision’s "strengths in inorganic chemistry, thin-film deposition and electrical device physics,” said Jason Carlson, president and CEO of QD Vision.
