Our technology

Quantum dots(QDs) are tiny solution-processable semiconductor nanoparticles. This class of materials emerged a few decades ago, but only recently QDs appeared in commercial products on the mass market. QDs have the full potential to revolutionize the area of X-ray imaging due to the set of their unique properties. The proposition of QDI systems is a mammography detector based on quantum dots, which provides high contrast and resolution mammograms for doctors, dose reduction for patients with lower costs for hospitals.

Furthermore, our patented QD technology allows scalable fabrication of semiconductive QD films with the thicknesses ranging from nanometers to hundreds of microns. Depending on the type of QDs, film thickness and device architecture, a wide variety of optoelectronic devices can be fabricated. We have extensive experience in making and stabilizing the dispersions of QDs for direct deposition of semiconductive films, fabrication of QD films by various solution-processable techniques, making and characterizing optoelectronic devices, patterning and encapsulating QD films.

About the company

QDI systems is a high-tech start-up, spin-off from Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, University of Groningen. At QDI systems, we develop imaging devices for medical applications based on quantum dots.

The strategy of QDI systems is to become a major technology provider, developing QDs technology for various applications. The value that we offer includes high-quality and easy-to-use quantum dot material and the detailed recipe on how to make a high-performance device out of it.

Are you interested in our technology and what we are doing? Do you have an idea about the collaboration or a problem that can be solved by using QD technology? Or you just want to share a few words with us?
