Organization

Qlight Nanotech (subsidiary of Merck) develops nanocrystals with unique optical properties for numerous applications, including technologies that can revolutionize the mechanism of action of flat panel displays. Its innovative film technology for LCD displays uses unique nanocrystals for reducing energy consumption while significantly improving the color quality. The technology can nearly double the battery run time in mobile devices, and reduce by almost half the energy consumption of TV sets. The company's film also improves the color quality of the display thus dramatically upgrading the user's viewing experience.

Qualifications

Work experience in nanophysics required.
