QD Vision Acquires Motorola Patent Portfolio Covering the Use of Quantum Dots in Display and Lighting Applications
Watertown, MA | Posted on May 24th, 2010
The addition of this portfolio augments QD Vision's position in quantum dot intellectual property. Included in the acquisition is U.S. Patent No. 5,442,254 of Jaskie, one of the earliest patents on the use of photoluminescent quantum dots in product applications, and pending applications relating to the use of quantum dots to a wide variety of display applications, including LCD backlight units. Prior to this acquisition, QD Vision's position in quantum dot intellectual property already included nine issued patents and more than 130 patents pending originating at MIT and QD Vision.
QD Vision is developing Quantum Light™ solutions for display backlight units (BLUs) used in several markets, including cell phones, laptops, and TVs, and plans to ship its first products in 2011. The company currently sells its Quantum LightTM optic product to the solid state lighting industry. All QD Vision products integrate cutting-edge technologies in nanotech materials, spanning chemistry, manufacturing methods, device designs and applications.
"As we continue to develop new products for solid state lighting and displays based on quantum dot technology, we are building one of the strongest patent portfolios in the industry," said Dan Button, QD Vision President and CEO. "This Motorola patent portfolio will be added to the vast wealth of intellectual property we already possess, which will enable us to maintain our market leading positions with our existing and future products."
