IP2 is proud supporting their clients in protecting their R&D investments in front runner technologies. Here are some examples of technical areas where we are currently involved in:


Quantum dots (QD) are very small semiconductor particles, only several nanometers in size, so small that their optical and electronic properties differ from those of larger particles. They are a central theme in nanotechnology. Many types of quantum dot will emit light of specific frequencies if electricity or light is applied to them, and these frequencies can be precisely tuned by changing the dots‘ size, shape and material, giving rise to many applications.

Quantum dots exhibit properties that are intermediate between those of bulk semiconductors and those of discrete molecules. Because of their highly tunable properties, QDs are of wide interest. Potential applications include transistorssolar cellsLEDs, diode lasers and second-harmonic generationquantum computing, and medical imaging.
