Named after Irish physicist George G. Stokes, Stokes shift is the difference between quantum dot’s peak excitation and the peak emission wavelengths. Minimizing overlap between total excitation and emission bands enhances the clarity and brightness of the fluorescing quantum dot by avoiding re-absorption of emitted light into nearby quantum dots - characteristics that display manufacturers and end-users find highly desirable. Until now it has not been possible to produce Stokes shift in quantum dots of up to 20nm in quantities suitable for manufacturing applications, but Quantum Material's patent-protected continuous flow production process enables automated synthesis with uniformity necessary for achieving precise characteristics for high-volume production of highly-driven Strong Shift quantum dots.
