QD Vision and In-Q-Tel Expand Strategic Partnership: Expanded Agreement with In-Q-Tel Brings New Applications of QD Vision’s Nano-Materials to the I

WATERTOWN, MA | Posted on November 3rd, 2008

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."
