Abstract: QD Vision spun out of MIT in 2005, with a broad technology suite, a business plan, and Series A funding. Despite several twists and turns of technology development and market evolution, QD Vision's quantum dot-enabled Color IQTM components are in ten models of 2013 Sony TVs that you can buy today, the first mainstream product launch of a QD device. This talk will describe the technology behind these TVs, our development program in electroluminescence, as well as our commitment to responsible design of nanomaterials.
