DARPA funds quantum dot prototype devices from QD Vision

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.

Although this project is sponsored by DARPA, the content of the information does not necessarily reflect the position or the policy of the government, and no official endorsement should be inferred.

QD Vision makes quantum dots, semiconductor crystals that control light, in highly differentiated display and lighting solutions. Learn more at www.qdvision.com
