Nanosys, a Palo Alto, CA-based advanced materials architect, has closed a $15m sixth funding round.
The backers remained unnamed.
The company intends to use the funding to expand its manufacturing capabilities.
Led by Jason Hartlove, President and CEO, Nanosys aims to harness the fundamental properties of inorganic materials into process ready systems that can integrate into existing manufacturing to produce vastly superior products in lighting, electronic displays and energy storage. Its flagship product is Quantum Dot Enhancement Film™ (QDEF), which utilizes the light emitting properties of quantum dots to improve the color performance and efficiency of Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs).
