QD Vision and Solvay Enter Agreement to Develop a Printable Electroluminescent Platform for Quantum Dot LEDs (QLEDS)

Watertown, MA | Posted on November 9th, 2010

QD Vision, Inc. and Solvay today announced an agreement under which the companies will develop a printable electroluminescent platform for quantum dot LEDs (QLEDs) that will lead to a new generation of solid state lighting products.

Developed by QD Vision, QLEDs are a reliable, energy efficient, tunable color solution for display and lighting applications that reduce manufacturing costs, while employing ultra-thin, transparent or flexible materials. www.qdvision.com/qleds-the-future

QLEDs utilize printing technologies to enable the manufacture of electroluminescent lighting devices in a wide variety of form factors including thin, lightweight, and flexible substrates. These new solid state lighting devices can be produced efficiently in high volume and at low cost.

Quantum dots provide the stability and reliability of inorganic semiconductor materials, and can be processed in solution. This unique capability enables the efficient manufacture of next generation electroluminescent solid state light sources with extraordinary color quality, efficiency, and stability.

"Our Strategic partnership with Solvay is the first step in creating an ecosystem of solutions required to commercialize the QLED materials that will lead to a new generation of energy-efficient, solid state lighting products " said Jason Carlson, QD Vision President and CEO.
