QD Vision, developer
of nanotechnology-based solutions for displays and lighting, will address three
major upcoming conferences on advances made in quantum dot technology that result
in major improvements in color quality, brightness and efficiency for the solid
state lighting and display industries.
Company co-founder Dr. Seth Coe-Sullivan will present at the 4th Global Plastic
Electronics conference in Berlin on October 28 and at the Materials Research
Society’s (MRS) Fall Conference in December in Boston. Dr. Peter Kazlas,
Director of Device Development, on September 10th will deliver at EL2008 in
Rome a keynote address titled “Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diodes –
a Printable Thin Film Light Source for Displays and Lighting Applications.”
At the Plastic Electronics conference, Dr. Coe-Sullivan will discuss quantum
dot light emitting devices for solid state lighting, while at MRS Fall 2008,
he will participate in a symposium on the Reliability and Properties of Electronic
Devices on Flexible Substrates.
EL2008 is an international conference on the science and technology of emissive
displays and lighting. In its fourth year, Global Plastics Electronics is the
most comprehensive printed electronics event in Europe. The fall conference
of the Materials Research Society is focused on extraordinary progress made
in materials science and technology.
“As we make significant progress in solving the major issues that display
and lighting manufacturers face in implementing new technologies -- lifetime,
color, power efficiency, manufacturability and scalability – it is important
that we communicate our success,” said Dr. Dan Button, QD Vision CEO.
“We believe that quantum dot-based materials have physical properties
that can help display and lighting makers reach the holy grail of breakthrough
performance in mass production with competitive consumer prices.”
QD Vision continues to improve and advance the capabilities and light-emitting
qualities of a new class of nanomaterials called quantum dots. Using proprietary
chemistry and process technology, QD Vision can engineer quantum dots to emit
light spanning the complete spectrum of colors across the visible to the infrared
when stimulated with photons or electrons. Leveraging an expanding patent portfolio
from QD Vision and from MIT, the company is enabling a new generation of advanced
lighting solutions that will set new standards for brightness, color precision
and purity, power consumption and design flexibility.
