QD Vision, developer
of nanotechnology-based solutions for displays and lighting, today announced
a second technology advancement agreement with In-Q-Tel, the independent strategic
investment firm that identifies innovative technology solutions to support the
mission of the U.S. Intelligence Community. The agreement expands the range
of technology being explored by QD Vision for the community.
QD Vision's Quantum Light™ platform uses quantum-dot technology to precisely
tailor light emission in the near-infrared and visible spectrum, enabling the
creation of any custom color when stimulated with photons or electrons. Leveraging
a breakthrough portfolio of patents and pending applications from QD Vision
and from MIT, the Quantum Light™ platform sets new standards for color
purity and brightness, power efficiency and design versatility. QD Vision is
currently bringing this technology to bear on a range of challenges in commercial
markets such as consumer electronics and solid state lighting, as well as defense
and security markets.
"QD Vision continues to deliver impressive technology capabilities,"
said Ben Levitan, Partner at In-Q-Tel. "QD Vision's technology offers great
promise for cutting-edge nano-material applications for customers in both the
government and commercial markets."
"As our partnership with In-Q-Tel unfolds, it is exciting to see multiple
areas where our technology has the potential to meet the unique and demanding
requirements of the Intelligence Community," said Dr. Dan Button, CEO of
QD Vision. "Moreover, these developments for In-Q-Tel have considerable
synergy with QD Vision's principal commercial agenda. We look forward to a long
and productive working relationship with In-Q-Tel."
