Project "Developing prototype quantum dot X-ray detector".

SNN VIA+ subsidy granted

We are happy to announce that SNN approved our VIA+ subsidy application for project "Developing prototype quantum dot X-ray detector".

In recent years, unique know-how has been created by the Department of Photophysics & Optoelectronics of the University of Groningen (RUG) about the use and use of Quantum Dots (QDs) in the detection of x-rays. With this technology, it seems possible to make X-ray images with a higher resolution, a higher contrast, and a lower radiation dose. QDI systems B.V. has obtained the right to further develop and commercialize this technology. Through this project, we want to build a prototype for an X-ray detector based on QDs to demonstrate the operating principle.
