QDI Systems from Groningen, the Netherlands, is the first initiative worldwide that is able to demonstrate the added value of quantum dots for X-ray examinations.
The technology is based on ultra-modern nanomaterial: quantum dots. This material converts photons into electronic signals in a highly effective way. When quantum dots are used for X-ray examinations, they are able to create a higher image quality at lower radiation doses. The technology is expected to have a huge impact on procedures like mammogram screening and diagnostics.
QDI Systems has already generated impressive traction and feedback from large industrial companies, some of which have stated that this is the best new tech they have seen in ten years.

QDI systems is a high-tech start-up, spin-off from Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, University of Groningen, founded by Dr. Artem Shulga. The strategy of QDI systems is to become a major technology provider, developing quantum dot technology for various applications. The company offers high-quality and easy-to-use quantum dot material and the detailed recipe on how to make a high-performance device out of it.
QDI Systems is founded by physicist Dr. Artem Shulga (PhD in quantum dots)
The QDI quantum dot approach has already attracted the interest of prominent industry players, for example Teledyne DALSA, a manufacturer of low-dose dynamic digital X-ray detectors.
When you use a high dose, the image quality gets better. But because radiation is also bad for the body, this is a difficult trade-off. Our quantum dot technology makes it possible to create X-ray views of higher image quality, but with a lower dose of X-rays. It’s better for the patient and better for the diagnosis.
