QD Vision Awarded $1.38 Million Department of Defense Contract
(Nanowerk News) QD Vision, Inc. today announced it recently was awarded a $1.38 million contract with the Department of Defense for specialized devices based on electroluminescent quantum dots. The 12-month program will result in the development of prototype devices that can be tested under real-world conditions, and that will ultimately be employed by U.S. forces.
Quantum dot technology developed at QD Vision provides unique advantages in numerous display and lighting applications. Quantum dots are semiconductor nanocrystals that can be tuned to emit light at specific wavelengths, and quantum dot LEDs (QLEDs) are thin-film, low-voltage devices with the capability to emit in both monochrome and full-color modes.
"This award demonstrates QD Vision's leadership in emissive materials and devices, and combines our strengths in inorganic chemistry, thin-film deposition and electrical device physics," said Jason Carlson, President and CEO of QD Vision. "We are excited and honored to take on this challenging program to provide important new devices and technology to the United States Department of Defense."
