Quantum Materials Corp. has inked a deal with STAR Park to increase the company's quantum dot production space four-fold when the modern lab and offices are completed on or before June 2015. The company is also recruiting to double its scientific staff by January next year.

"It is extremely gratifying that our work is meeting with industry acceptance from some of the most technologically advanced companies in the world," said Quantum Materials Founder and CEO Stephen Squires. "Our expansion demonstrates our commitment to meet the demands of next-generation television and display, solid-state lighting and solar energy manufacturers. We will be bringing to San Marcos top scientists and chemists to develop non-heavy metal tetrapod quantum dots and thick-shell technology to optimize them for each client's purpose and to their true commercial potential."

Samsung and LG Display are looking at using quantum dots to create the next-generation Ultra High Definition televisions rather than organic light emitting diodes (OLED). Estimates suggest that a 55in quantum dot TV would cost consumers about 35 per cent more than a current LCD TV, while an OLED TV could be five times more expensive. Quantum Materials' patented and automated process for quantum dot manufacture can further reduce manufacturer's costs through economies of scale.
