Spire Receives Patent for Synthesis of Quantum Dot Nanostructures

Massachusetts-based Spire Corporation, a global player in solar cell manufacturing equipment, was recently awarded a US Patent for the designing and synthesizing of highly-uniform nanoparticles (patent #7,306,963: “Precision Synthesis of Quantum Dot Nanostructures for Fluorescent and Optoelectronic Devices”). Spire’s innovative method for creating uniform nanoparticles could lead to highly efficient, low cost solar cells. The method for creating the nanostructures also make them desirable for the medical industry, including diagnostics and medical assays.
