Infrared Quantum Dot Materials for Image Sensing
Our ground-breaking INFIQ® quantum dot technology enable image sensors to detect an ultra-wide range of wavelengths from visible to the infrared and beyond. INFIQ® QD sensors will be high resolution, more cost effective and significantly more efficient. Our infrared absorbing nanomaterials can disrupt high cost incumbent materials such as InGaAs and Ge using low cost and high throughput solution processing techniques. We partner with world leading semiconductor and device manufacturers to develop the next step in infrared image sensing technology.
Enabling sensors to see beyond the visible
Robotic cars, 3D Time-of-Flight, machine vision, augmented reality and IoT devices are some of the hyper growth markets in which sensors are required to accurately detect distance, depth and defects.
INFIQ® quantum dots are compatible with standard silicon based CMOS read out integrated circuits. Integrating our INFIQ® quantum dot absorbers directly onto the CMOS ROIC enables sensors with state-of-the-art resolution (<0.9 µm) at wavelengths beyond those accessible by monolithic silicon at an order of magnitude lower cost than III-V semiconductor flip-chip hybridised sensors.
See through vision in low visibility conditions such as in fog, snow or storms
Accurate image capture even in extreme low light conditions and true high dynamic range (HDR)
An ever expanding number of innovative applications such as facial recognition, augmented reality, distance measurement, and low light vision are entering the consumer and mobile market space. These customer driven features are dependent upon high performance sensors to deliver effective and exciting experiences to customers. At the same time, the ever burgeoning bill-of-materials (BOM) is a key driver to control costs in the consumer space where value and performance are strict requirements.
Integrating INFIQ® technology into existing CMOS sensors will allow infrared sensors to proliferate into a large number of exciting markets including mobile, AR/VR headsets, wearables, consumer drones/robotics, computing and IoT devices. The large volumes forecast for these markets indicate a bright future for INFIQ® quantum dot absorber technology.
