Dr. Jian Chen, CTO of Nanosys, will give a keynote address on Quantum Dots at the SPIE Photonics West Opto on February 12, 2015 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Quantum dots are a new generation of phosphor material that have high quantum efficiency, narrow spectral line-widths and can be continuously tuned in their emission wavelengths. Since 2013, quantum dots have been adopted by the consumer electronics industry into LCDs to significantly increase their color performance. Compared to the OLED solution, quantum dot enabled LCDs have higher energy efficiency, larger color gamut, longer lifetime, and are offered at a fraction of the OLED panel cost. In addition, quantum-dot based LCDs can achieve more than 90% coverage of a much wider color gamut, Rec. 2020, which is the new color standard for UHDTV. Rec. 2020 displays were previously thought to be only possible with laser illumination sources.
