Solutions In Silicon
AQM is a world leader in the research, development and synthesis of metal-free, biocompatible silicon quantum dots and semiconductor nanoparticles for a broad range of applications in sensing, energy, displays, security and bio-imaging. We specialize in producing superior nanomaterials made using our patented synthesis methods. Our quantum dots demonstrate excellent size distribution, bright emission and purity as a result of years of experience producing nanoparticles. Our production capability includes custom wavelengths, solvent compatibilities and surface chemistry to meet your specific needs.
AQM’s new class of silicon quantum dots (SiQDs) was developed as an alternative safe and abundant class of nanomaterial to address the issues of other quantum dot technologies that contain either toxic or scarce heavy-metals such as cadmium, lead and indium. Legislation limiting the use of heavy metals is becoming increasingly restrictive, in order to protect consumers and the environment. Our SiQDs were made to withstand high temperatures and other challenging environmental or biological conditions.
Silicon quantum dots with 85% quantum yield are transforming the way industry uses color and light.
Metal-free, biocompatible silicon quantum dots, silicon-based nanomaterials and semiconductor photolithography resists for a broad range of applications in nanoelectronics, sensing, energy, displays, security and bio-imaging.
