Nanosys is the leader in developing and delivering state-of-the-art materials to the display industry. Our proprietary technology, a key component of the Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV revolution, is enabling a new generation of displays delivering vivid color, lifelike brightness and incredible power efficiency at a fraction of the cost of competing technologies. Industry leading consumer electronics brands (such as Samsung, TCL, Hisense, Amazon, ASUS, Vizio and others) have shipped award-winning devices from tablets to TVs based on our proprietary technology.

Founded in 2001, the company is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California where it operates the world’s largest nanomaterials fab.

Our quantum dots are designed to increase the range of colors emitted by standard displays by up to 50%. Once created, the dots are coated onto a barrier film (coating) that we call QDEF, which in turn is added to a display during the manufacturing process.  We have been very successful in developing the market for quantum dots in the display industry and we’ve been responsible for many breakthrough technologies. As a result of our continued growth we are developing new products and new markets and now need to bring on-board a Technical Sales professional who will help to develop new markets and work with new and existing clients in meeting their needs for quantum dots and film.
