Quantum Dot Innovator Joins Quantum Materials

Former Seoul Semiconductor principal scientist Nathan Scott brings wealth of lighting experience to company

North American quantum dot manufacturer Quantum Materials has announced that Nathan Stott has joined the company as director of materials.

"We are truly excited to have Dr. Stott join our team," said company founder and CEO Stephen Squires. "As one of the foremost leaders in research on quantum dots, Nathan brings a wealth of knowledge and proven experience to the company. His innovative work in chemistry, material science and nanotechnology and its application to consumer electronics is invaluable as we begin commercialising our technologies."

Stott had most recently worked on developing quantum dots for the LED lighting industry as team lead, principal scientist and senior lab manager with Seoul Semiconductor. Prior to that he was senior research scientist and project lead for Pacific Light Technologies, responsible for the development of semiconductor nanomaterial down-convertors for integration into solid-state lighting as well as being project lead for green quantum dot emitters.

Stott has additionally performed research while at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, at Samsung and at Cabot Corporation.

Stott has a Ph.D. in Physical (Nanomaterials) Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Arizona. Stott is an inventor on multiple patents primarily focused on development of quantum dots and their use in lighting and displays. 

"QMC is ramping up production with game-changing technology to support tier-one customer engagements," said Stott. "I am thrilled to be part of a top notch team."
