Nanosys has won the SID Display Week 2017 Component of the Year Award for it's Hyperion Quantum Dot technology. These new quantum dots enable displays to meet the BT.2020 ultra-high-definition (UHD) color standard without requiring an exemption to the Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive issued by the European Union. The Hyperion quantum dots combine a Cd-free red quantum dot with a green quantum dot whose Cd content and emission spectrum are very low. This has allowed Nanosys to demonstrate >90 percent BT.2020 color gamut using Hyperion in a quantum-dot enhancement film (QDEF) sheet with Cd levels below the RoHS ceiling of 100 parts-per-million (ppm). Nanosys has partnered with Hitachi Chemical to begin immediate production of QDEF with Hyperion quantum dots.
