QD Vision Spotlights Advances in Quantum Dot Technology for Solid State Lighting and Displays
(Nanowerk News) QD Vision, developer of nanotechnology-based products for lighting and displays, has accepted invitations to highlight advances in quantum dot technology at nine major industry events in the next six months.
Since announcing its first product earlier this year – a Quantum Light™ optic for a new LED lamp developed by Nexxus Lighting that combines the warmth and color of incandescent bulbs with the efficiency of LED technology – QD Vision has seen a significant increase in lighting and display industry interest for its quantum dot technology. The company’s Quantum LightTM product line enables major improvements in color quality, brightness and efficiency for solid state lighting and displays, while reducing overall system costs. The Nexxus LED lamp incorporating the Quantum Light™ optic from QD Vision will be commercially available in early 2010.
“The potential improvements in lighting and display system cost, color and efficiency offered by our Quantum LightTM product platform have drawn increasing interest from several prestigious industry organizations, as well as leading companies in general illumination and consumer electronics markets,” said Dr. Dan Button, President and CEO of QD Vision. “Our announcement with Nexxus Lighting of the first SSL lamp utilizing quantum dot technology to achieve best-in-class performance generated a lot of excitement about what QD Vision is bringing to lighting and display applications.”
Company co-founder and chief technology officer Seth Coe-Sullivan and other QD Vision executives will discuss quantum dots and their impact on lighting and displays at the following conferences:
