The biggest market for quantum dots today is in the improvement in color accuracy and efficiency of liquid crystal displays (LCD). In such an application a small amount of dots are utilized and embedded behind layers of encapsulation. UbiQD is thinking beyond displays about what new products that are enabled by the the low cost, low toxicity, and lack of self-absorption of the their novel nanomaterials.
There are many applications that the company is considering including safety, industrial design, solar energy, solid-state lighting, biotechnology, art, cosmetics, security, sensors, and non-destructive testing. In the four focus areas selected below, UbiQD is more active in developing partnerships, building demonstrations, and filling intellectual property.
