QD Vision Receives DARPA Contract to Advance Quantum Dot-Based IR Materials

QD Vision, a privately-held company headquartered in Watertown, Massachusetts, has recently received a development project from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

The project includes advancement of QD Vision’s infrared (IR) materials based on quantum dots,which is referred to as semiconductor nanocrystals, and delivery of two prototype solutions. DARPA provides a $900,000 grant to carry out a broad research and development work for one year. This is QD Vision’s second DARPA project, where it acts as a major contractor.

The two prototype devices have to be delivered when the DARPA project is completed. One prototype is provided with quantum dots embedded as an emissive layer in an electronic device or an electroluminescent application. The other prototype is delivered by implanting quantum dots in a film that is activated by peripheral light sources, photoluminescent application. Quantum dots can be altered for light emission at more specific wavelengths. President and CEO, Jason Carlson remarked that QD Vision’s capability to develop consistent and efficient IR materials for strategic uses will be leveraged by the DARPA program.

As a provider of quantum dot products, QD Vision offers highly distinguished lighting and display solutions. Quantum Light platform from the company enables enhancements in the existing technologies, including OLEDs, LEDs and LCDs.
