Advano & Tulane University receive $70,000 grant for Silicon Quantum Dot technology

Advano & Tulane University receive $70,000 Louisiana Board of Regent grant to prototype Silicon Quantum Dot films

Advano in conjunction with Dr. Brian Mitchell, Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Tulane University, has received a $70,000 Louisiana Board of Regent grant for the development of Silicon Quantum Dot (SiQD) based films using ultra-small silicon nanoparticles produced by Advano's break-through manufacturing process. Advano's SiQDs fluoresce in the blue-green region of the visible spectrum when excited by UV light. The deposition of these materials into a thin-film is a critical step to commercialize a SiQD based phosphor. This has implications in solid-state lighting (Blue LEDs) and also solar energy harvesting, where harmful UV sun rays can be converted into harvestable blue-green light.

Advano was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in New Orleans, LA.  Advano is a nanoparticle manufacturing and processing company that will disrupt the way nanoparticles are currently made. Advano features an innovative 4-in-1 step nanoparticle manufacturing process that is rapid, simple, efficient and highly scalable. The functionalized nanoparticles produced by Advano's process are high quality and are produced up to 3,000x cheaper than current market price.
