Evident launches quantum dot composites

Feb. 18, 2004 — Evident Technologies has commercially launched quantum dot composites for use in photonics, light-emitting diodes, paints and other applications, according to a news release.

The Troy, N.Y.-based developer of quantum dots, or semiconductor nanocrystals, said its EviDot Composites allow product developers to control the form of the dots and enable them to create films, beads, fibers and micronsize particles. EviDot Composites are available in prepared films, optical mounts, an ultraviolet curable resin and common polymers.

A company official said in a news release that quantum dots are only a scientific curiosity unless brought to a scale where they can be applied. Using quantum dots in solid matrix materials bridges the gap between the nano and macro worlds, the release said.
