Bacterial Synthesis of Quantum Dots

Technology Area: Materials & Chemical

Commercial Maturity: Proven Manufacturability

Abstract: A major barrier to the utilization of quantum dots in commercial applications is the high cost of chemical synthesis and the use of high temperatures and toxic solvents. Lehigh has developed an optimized, bacterial synthesis that does not require expensive reagents, solvents or other materials.
