How low-cost SWIR imaging benefits the machine vision sector

Industrial automation has been evolving rapidly, but the vision of a factory that can run 24/7, maintaining itself and minimising the risk of accidents or human error, remains just out of reach.  For all the great leaps AI and machine learning have taken in recent years, these tools can only ever be as good as […]

Why did quantum dots win the Nobel Prize for chemistry?

It’s official: quantum dots (QDs) are transforming the way we live. Don’t just take our word for it – ask the Nobel committee, which earlier this year awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry to the three scientists behind the discovery and development of this ground-breaking technology.  But why were QDs nominated in the first place?  […]

Building the world-leading quantum dot and semiconductor team 

As infrared quantum dot (QD) technology unlocks more exciting applications in electronic devices, at Quantum Science we have been investing in the team that makes this advancement possible.  Data from the U.S Bureau of Labor and Statistics shows that 45% of new businesses fail within five years. Over this same time period, Quantum Science has […]

How quantum dots can drive development of fully autonomous vehicles 

For over a century, driverless vehicles have been seen as the next great frontier in the automotive industry – a frontier that remains tantalisingly out of reach for mass-market vehicle manufacturers.  Standardisation body SAE International has six clear tiers of automation, ranging from Level 0 – no automation – to Level 5, which is described […]

Quantum doctors: Improving medical diagnosis with SWIR imaging

Quantum dots (QDs) are the biggest disruptor so far on the imaging landscape.
