UbiQD transforms greenhouses with quantum dots


UbiGro Cover integrates fluorescent QD technology into an extruded greenhouse cover film.

UbiQD, a New Mexico-based quantum dot (QD) company, has announced a product called UbiGro Cover that integrates fluorescent QD technology into an extruded greenhouse cover film.

"It's hard to overstate our excitement for UbiGro Cover," said Eric Moody, UbiQD VP of sales and marketing. "Cultivators have been requesting a roof-integrated 'full cover' quantum dot solution at a cost-effective price point, and I'm pleased to announce that the future has arrived."

UbiGro Cover's QD technology is tailored to produce specific light spectra that boosts crop growth and can promote plant health and quality. This technology stems from foundational work recently honoured with the 2023 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

"Developing a fully extruded yet stable quantum dot greenhouse film was no small feat," said Matt Bergren, UbiQD chief product pfficer. "Decades of R&D on the materials, horticulture, and product engineering has gone in to making it work, and now we're delivering a cover solution to our customers."

"With the introduction of UbiGro Cover, traction in big solar, and the Nobel Prize, quantum dots are having a great year," added Hunter McDaniel, UbiQD CEO. "These novel materials are graduating from the early beachhead markets, such as display, and catching their stride by making positive advancements in food and energy. It's exciting to see nanomaterials innovation translate into tangible products."
