Direct optical lithography of functional inorganic nanomaterials

NanoPattern Technologies has developed a unique (and patented) inorganic ligand chemistry that enables virtually any nanomaterial (Quantum Dots, metals, dielectrics, catalysts, magnetic materials) to be converted into a photo-patternable ink that can be patterned at sub-micron resolutions. This unique photo-sensitive inorganic ligand results in a final patterned film that is over 99 vol% functional nanoparticles. This is significant in the quantum dot display industry because it enables electroluminescent quantum dot displays made using manufacturing equipment that already exists and is commonly used (405 nm photolithography).
