cameras which are used for instance to inspect sewage systems. Other fields of application inclu- de research activities, metallic coatings, or medical devices.
echnologies and De- vices International, Inc. (TDI), part of the Oxford
Instruments Group, and Ostendo Technologies are pleased to announce the availability of Semi- Polar (11-22) GaN layer on sapphire substrate wafers using Ostendo’s proprietary design and TDI’s proprie- tary Hydride Vapour Phase Epitaxy (HVPE) technology. This joint development now provides the opportu- nity to leading High Brightness Light Emitting Diode (HBLED) and Laser Diode developers to increase op- tical efficiency significantly compared with structures grown on c-plane GaN substrates.
Furthermore, Oxford Instruments has just launched its PlasmaPro NGP80 system. A compact open-loa- ding tool, PlasmaPro NGP80 offers versatile plasma etch and deposition solutions on one platform with convenient open loading. Its small footprint system is easy to site and easy to use, with no compromi- se on process quality, and with multiple process technology configurations. The PlasmaPro NGP80 is ideally suited to R&D or small-scale production, and can process from the smallest wafer pieces to 200mm wafers. In April 2010, Oxford Instruments NanoScience has been awarded The Queen’s Award

D Vision, developer of Quantum Light™ nanotechnology-based products for solid state
lighting and displays, has purchased from Motorola (NYSE: MOT) a patent portfolio pertaining to the use of quantum dot technology in display and lighting products.
The addition of this portfolio augments QD Vision’s position in quantum dot intellectual property. Inclu- ded in the acquisition is U.S. Patent No. 5,442,254 of Jaskie, one of the earliest patents on the use of photoluminescent quantum dots in product appli- cations, and pending applications relating to the use of quantum dots to a wide variety of display appli- cations, including LCD backlight units. Prior to this acquisition, QD Vision’s position in quantum dot intellectual property already included nine issued pa- tents and more than 130 patents pending originating at MIT and QD Vision.
QD Vision is developing Quantum Light™ solutions for display backlight units (BLUs) used in several markets, including cell phones, laptops, and TVs, and plans to ship its first products in 2011. The company
