The synthesis of Quantum dots currently suffers from many problems of flow rates, variability and dangerousness of the production which leads to high manufacturing costs. The process developed proposes to refrain from these constraints thanks to an innovative manufacturing protocol, without cadmium in water. This protocol allows an automatic production of these compounds using an algorithm creating a feedback loop. Finally, the technology makes it possible to map Quantum dots to obtain different optical properties.
