DEMO Spring: Quantum Dots About to Move into Camera Sensors

When I scanned through the exhibitor list at Demo Spring in Palm Desert, Calif., InVisage Technologies, a company promising a leap forward in camera sensor technologies with paint-on quantum dot technology, immediately went to the top of my "gotta check this out" list. I was even more intrigued to discover that their Chief Technology Officer, Ted Sargent, had written an article for IEEE Spectrum's February issue explaining the technology. ("Connecting the Quantum Dots.") He hadn't happened to mention that he had a little company about to introduce image sensors into the cell phone market.
