Evident Technologies Announces Issuance of Key Patent for Semiconductor Nanocrystal Synthesis
(Nanowerk News) Evident Technologies, Inc. today announced the issuance of US Patent No. 7,482,059 covering the ability to synthesize a semiconductor nanocrystal structure with a metal layer which dramatically enhances the brightness and stability of the semiconductor nanocrystal complex. This newly issued patent represents another major advance of semiconductor materials science and further enhances the breadth of the company's expansive intellectual property portfolio.
"The issuance of this key patent highlights Evident Technologies' position as a leader in the development of proprietary semiconductor nanocrystal technologies and provides Evident with broad protection in a rapidly growing segment of the market," stated Clint Ballinger Ph.D., CEO of Evident Technologies. "In response to growing industry demand, our scientists have worked diligently over the past several years to develop new bright, stable semiconductor nanocrystals."
"Since I started working at Evident in 2001, I've seen our patent portfolio grow to over 70 patents and patents pending, and it's very exciting work," stated Adam Peng Ph.D., Senior Scientist. "This patented material already goes into our LED products that you can buy at local retailers, so even my kids can see the impact our science has on products. I'm proud to be part of the Evident team."
Evident Technologies' extensive catalog of semiconductor nanocrystal materials are used globally in a number of industries and products ranging from electronics to life science reagents. Companies and research institutes will benefit from this new, patented technology and continue the development of quantum dot applications from energy conversion to LEDs to the life sciences.
