IEEE Spectrum: Printing Quantum Dot Displays to be as Cheap as Printing a T-Shirt

Nanosys executives caught up with IEEE Spectrum during the Economist's Future Materials Summit earlier this month for a conversation on the future of printed Quantum Dot displays:

“If we can get the cost of making a display down to $100 per square meter, which is basically the same cost as printing a high-reolution poster or printing a T-shirt, then displays could be everywhere,” said Russell Kempt, vice president of sales and marketing at Nanosys. “That’s our vision and we believe that the quantum dot material is the only material that has the opportunity to achieve this.”

Display Daily: Quantum Dot Display Technology Coming to LCD's Rescue

Sweta Dash from DisplayDaily explains how Quantum Dots are enabling LCDs to match or even out perform competitors by providing higher peak brightness, wider color gamut and better image quality. These are all the crucial requirements for the best UltraHD HDR experience:

"After CCFL-based TV sets reached market maturity and growth slowed down, LED-based LCD TV created a growth cycle by boosting replacement demand. The winning formula was “good enough picture quality” with “competitive price”. It not only changed the TV market, it also spilled over to all other application markets such as monitor, notebook, industrial, medical and others and that strengthened the LCD technology and production base. Quantum dot technology has the same potential to enable LCD to create a growth cycle and drive replacement demand.

TV manufacturers are shifting to higher resolutions to offer better picture quality. But adoption of WCG and HDR with 4K resolutions really helped consumer to see the visual quality differences and experience it. Quantum dot enhanced backlight light in LCD TV takes it to the next level with an even wider range of colors and luminance."

Printed Electronics Now: Quantum Dots Make Gains in the Display Market

Learn about the latest Quantum Dot technology with David Savastano at Printed Electronics Now as he interviews Russell Kempt, Nanosys VP of Sales and Marketing:

There has been a lot of discussions over the years about both flexible displays and the possibility of printing these displays.  Leaders in the quantum dot  field say that both of these scenarios are strong possibilities.

“Quantum dots can absolutely be deployed in flexible displays,” said Nanosys’ Kempt. “In fact, all of the research we are doing today for flexible displays relies on printing techniques. Nanosys is leading the way in the development of EL QD displays. We have already achieved better than 10% external quantum efficiency (EQE) for our blue cadmium free EL-QD emitter materials. This is a key milestone in the development of EL QD displays. For context, the best commercially available blue OLEDs are not much better. However, there is more work to do before EL QD displays are fully commercialized. We expect to see displays in the three- to five-year time frame.”

Electro Optics: Quantum Dots Enabling A New Era of Color

As display resolution reaches a point of diminishing returns display makers are turning their focus to wide color gamut and pixel quality as the next step for display development. Matthew Dale of ElectoOptics recently spoke with analyst Eric Virey of Yole Developpment and Nanosys' Jeff Yurek for an update on next generation materials technologies that are enabling a new era in color for displays:

"‘Quantum dots are able to achieve higher peak brightness, lower energy consumption, slightly wider colour gamut and better colour volume [than OLEDs] – the ability to render all the colours perfectly at any level of brightness,’ Virey explained.

This competitive performance, combined with minimal capital investment, an ease of implementation and an upcoming period of constrained manufacturing for OLED televisions, could lead to a dramatic increase in uptake of quantum dot LCD (QLCD/QLED) televisions worldwide in the near future. Yole expects quantum dot televisions to capture the lion’s share of the WCG market over the next five years."

OLED shows Apparent Burn-in Issue in just 5 Weeks from RTings’ Comparison Test

During the end of August this year, RTings analysts have begun a burn-in test on 3 different TV panels. The tested subjects were the OLED LG B6, the VA Samsung KU6300 and the IPS LG UJ6300. It was a side by side comparison where the TV was playing a 5.5-hour loop for 20 hours a day with the RTings logo projected on the corners. As you can see on their pictures and test results, in just two weeks, the OLED LG B6 was already showing mild permanent image retention on some of the colors and by week five, the OLED's burn in issue has become apparent.

Quantum Dots can improve display efficiency by 75% in bright rooms according to DisplayMate

Ray Soneira, the display expert behind DisplayMate, posted a piece on test results of Samsung's latest Quantum Dot TVs in real world ambient light. He found that Quantum Dots can help boost a display's power efficiency by 75% by maintaining color accuracy in bright ambient light with lower brightness:

"Since ambient light washes out the on-screen colors, the first step is to enlarge the Native Color Gamut of the display as much as possible. Quantum Dots, which is the technology used in the Samsung 65Q9 TV, can now further expand the Native Color Gamut very efficiently ...

A major advantage for using this advanced technology rather than the current brute force method of just increasing the Picture Brightness in ambient light is that it can produce the same vibrant on-screen colors in ambient light with 75 percent less display power up through 2,000 lux, which is very important for TV energy efficiency, and also very important for Smartphones because they depend on limited battery power."

Yole Développement: Quantum Dot Displays Set to Lead Wide Colour Gamut TV Market

According to Yole Développement, Quantum Dot TVs are set to dominate and lead the wide color gamut TV market. Driven by the availability of high volume QD production from Nanosys and it's extended supply chain, TV makers can rapidly adopt the benefits of Quantum Dots

"With the rapidly improving performance and decreasing cost of quantum dots, enhanced LCD displays will be able to take advantage of an upcoming window of limited production for organic LED (OLED) displays – the other main contender capable of delivering wide colour gamut and high dynamic range – and become widely adopted in mid-high range television displays, thus capturing the majority of the wide colour gamut TV market.

OLEDs require the building of entire new production facilities to incorporate into televisions, creating high cost and technology barriers that make it challenging for companies to enter OLED television panel production."

Forbes contributor John Archer breaks down the numbers behind the current TV Tech War with help from veteran display analyst Ross Young

"Delving deeper into some of the reasons why DSCC sees OLED struggling so much over the next few years, the report states that OLED TV production techniques are lagging significantly behind QLED ones. QLED lines running to the so-called 10.5G specification are estimated to be as much as two years ahead of 10.5G OLED lines - a big deal when you consider that 10.5G lines are optimized for production of the 65-inch and 75-inch screens expected to become an increasingly key part of the TV market in the next few years."

Analyst Ken Werner takes a break from the BBQ to share a high-altitude snapshot of the display industry at mid-year for DisplayDaily. He see's OLED gaining ground in small displays such as smartphones and automotive screens but questions whether the technology will scale to larger formats in the face of continued LCD innovations like Quantum Dots:

"There is considerable growth in store for OLED displays in smart phones, other battery-operated devices, and automotive applications. But the growth in TVs may be considerably less than many analysts were predicting just two or three ago."
