Value Proposition: Night vision is a growing segment within military, law enforcement and emergency services. Quantum dots are superior to traditional night vision compatible optics, such as dichroic filters, which are extremely expensive and inefficient. Our Night Vision Compatible Quantum Dot Film Optic is a unique, rugged, low-cost form factor that is a perfect drop-in fit for modern High Definition night vision compatible avionics displays and can be easily modified to fit other display applications. Within the displays market, the demand for Quantum Dot Display Optics outweighs the supply – of both optic producers and quantum dot mnufacturers. Our patented low-temperature manufacturing method is easily scalable and more economical while producing consistently higher quality quantum dots. Because we have access to our own low cost quantum dots, combined with our specialized knowledge required to address the requirements of our customers to make the quantum dots application compatible, we believe we are well positioned to provide superior products in this market. Our competitive advantage in the night vision niche market is our ability to produce custom quantum dot optic formulations for various vendors while our larger competitors only have a one-size-fits-all solution.
