Nanosys, Inc. Expands into New, High-Capacity Production Facility in Milpitas, California

Nanosys, Inc. announced that it has expanded into a new, high-capacity production facility in Milpitas, California. Nanosys' new 60,000 square foot facility will produce over 1,000 kilograms of quantum dots per year- enough material to build more than five million 55" quantum dot televisions. As part of the expansion Nanosys expects to create more than 50 next-generation manufacturing jobs in the South Bay. Nanosys' latest product, Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF), is a drop-in optical component for LCDs that creates a richer, more lifelike color experience while consuming less power than alternatives. Nanosys is working closely with 3M to ramp deliveries as demand for QDEF from global display manufacturers increases.

Nanosys, Inc. to Expand Quantum Dot Manufacturing

Nanosys, Inc.closed a $15 million sixth round of funding. The company will use the new investment to expand its quantum dot manufacturing capabilities. The company's quantum dot product is Quantum Dot Enhancement Film™ (QDEF), which vastly improves the color performance and efficiency of Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs).
