Future applications and markets for quantum dots

(Nanowerk News) IntertechPira has annoounced an e-learning webinar on Future Applications and Markets for Quantum Dots:
The world is eagerly awaiting the flood of new products that are enabled by nanotechnology. Although it may not be a “flood”, the first nanotech products are already on the market and there are more in the wings. In general, nanotech can be divided into top down, making smaller widgets, and bottom up, making new materials from nano-sized fundamental particles. This presentation will focus on the bottoms-up approach and in particular focus on the use of semiconductor nanocrystals, or Quantum Dots.
The journey from nanotech material to commercially available product is difficult. To fully realize the potential of nanotechnology, we have to convert our nano-science into real products that have a benefit that customers demand. The journey to make viable products from nanotech materials will be explored where the pitfalls are highlighted. Special attention will be paid to market volatility since the world economic picture is different now than ever before.
Highlights of the presentation:
  • developing products from nanomaterials
  • creating and retaining customers
  • creating a culture of being laser focused on moving targets
  • Reasons to attend:
  • Learn about how to convert nano-science into real products
  • Understand how economic volatility will effect nanomaterials
  • Hear from an industry leader about the use of semiconductor nanocrystals
  • When
