US Patent 7742322 - Fused nanocrystal films

InVisage is a company implementing high-resolution and high-performance imaging devices with a small form factor by using quantum dot films. This appears to be a basic Qdot patent covering their technology. Claim 1 reads:

1. A film comprising a network of fused nanocrystals, the nanocrystals having a core and an outer surface, wherein the core of at least a portion of the fused nanocrystals is in direct physical contact and electrical communication with the core of at least one adjacent fused nanocrystal, and wherein the film has substantially no defect states in the regions where the cores of the nanocrystals are fused.
