The biggest market for quantum dots is for LCD display application. Currently only two types of quantum dots are available: Cadmium selenide (CdSe) and indium phosphide (InP) that are not fully compatible with customers’ requirements. LCD producers are not satisfied with CdSe quantum dots because of high toxicity and InP quantum dots because of low performance.On the other hand, due to ramping up of quantum dots demand, the industry requires higher production volumes and cheaper prices. Currently companies aren’t able fully comply this demand because of using traditional batch processing – a system that has several drawbacks such as poor scalability, lack of reproducibility, and high associated costs.
To answer this pressing need, Quantum Solutions has developed a new generation of quantum dots (Perovskite Quantum Dots and Zero-Dimensional Perovskites). These have efficiency comparable or even higher than CdSe quantum dots and are significantly better quality than InP. At the same time, materials are free of toxic cadmium.
Quantum Solutions has also developed proprietary technology for large- scale synthesis of quantum dots. Its reactor enables production of quantum dots at a larger scale than traditional manufacturing reactors, as well as being of higher quality and with improved cost-efficiency (due to low raw materials waste).
