The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) hosted U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on Tuesday, July 30 as part of her “Listening Tour” across America. The event included a roundtable discussion with Lt. Governor Robert Duffy and executives from CNSE’s corporate partners; a briefing on the New York State-CNSE-SEMATECH nanotechnology ecosystem; and a tour of CNSE’s world-class Albany NanoTech Complex.
Quantum Technology Group
Quantum Technology Group (QTG) owns the patent rights for a unique non-toxic ZnSe nanoparticle (quantum dot – QD) and a manufacturing process that specifically addresses industry demands. QTG has recently entered the marketplace as a bulk chemical manufacturer with sales of QD’s to industry.
Laboratory manufacturing has been established by collaboration with an existing chemical synthesis firm with decades of experience. QTG offers a stable platform technology for product development ventures and eliminates the need for QD sourcing and the licensing requirements or possible infringements of combined technologies and patents.
The Quantum Technology Group’s patent portfolio establishes broad implications for utilization by a wide variety of industries. Our technology represents university based research patents that now are exclusively licensed to QTG.The products QTG produces are in critical demand by industry and represent the platform or core technology they require. Specific quality characteristics have been identified and our products meet and exceed industry requirements. Furthermore, our capabilities produce a nontoxic alternative for current manufacturers. We currently meet RoHS (Restrictions of Hazardous Substances) standard Sand Green Leaf Certifications. Our unique manufacturing process also presents the ability to produce nontoxic quantum dots and deliver bulk manufacturing.
Specific industries demand large quantity production, QTG can meet these needs. Our scientific competencies also extend into product development and collaborations with industry. QTG welcomes inquiries and offers it’s considerable resources and those of the well established commercial and academic scientific community. QTG is located in the center of the technology corridor north of Boston Massachusetts.
