Printed Electronics Now: Nanosys Honored for Hyperion Quantum Dot Technology at Display Week

David Savastano, writing for Printed Electronics Now, covers Nanosys' success and growth over the past few years and winning the Component of the Year at SID Display Week for the second time:

"With more than 300 issued or pending patents, Nanosys, Inc. is a key leader in the QD field. Founded in 2001, Nanosys is noted for its Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) technology, which appears in TVs, monitors, tablets and displays. The company operates the world’s largest quantum dot nanomaterials fab, with manufacturing capacity for more than 25 tons of quantum dot materials annually."

DisplayDaily: Next Gen Display Product Innovations: A Necessity For Survival

Sweta Dash, writing for DisplayDaily, breaks down all the latest display innovation found at last month's SID DisplayWeek show in Los Angeles. She highlights Nanosys' award winning Hyperion Quantum Dot materials as a key innovation for LCDs. 

"In general, technology prototypes take years to be commercialized. Some products never even get a chance for mass production. But, in recent years, display application market growth-rates have been slowing down. The battle for survival and dominance between LCD and OLED technology has been heating up. Next generation product innovation has become a necessity for survival."

DisplayDaily: Next Step for Quantum Dots

Ken Werner, writing for DisplayDaily on his visit to the Nanosys booth at DisplayWeek

In their booth on the floor of the Society for Information Display's Display Week at the Los Angeles Convention Center yesterday, some of the folks at quantum-dot-maker Nanosys seemed almost giddy. Samsung's 2017 QLED TV sets, which use Nanosys-licensed QD technology, are a significant critical success, and the company's Hyperion QD technology, which was featured in the booth, is in TV sets from Hisense, TCL and others that should be on the market early next year at prices that should perhaps half that of Samsung's 2017 QLED sets...

Electronic Design: What's the Difference Between Display Technologies?

Consumers shopping for a new TV or mobile device today are faced with a wide array of display technology options. From curved vs flat to Quantum Dot vs LED vs OLED vs Micro LED... the choice is no longer as simple as LED vs Plasma. 

Yong-Seog Kim, President, Society for Information Display, is trying to get to the bottom of this question. To do this, he's reached out to the top technology companies behind the latest, greatest display tech to ask them directly "what's the difference between all these new display technologies?" 

A compilation of Dr. Kim's interviews has just been posted at Electronic Design and Nanosys is the featured representative for Quantum Dots.

Quantum Dots show growth during DisplayWeek 2016

Quantum dots (QD) are a technology on the rise for display manufacturers, and some of the major leaders in the field showed their latest technologies during SID Display Week 2016.
 
For example, Nanosys, Inc. introduced its new Hyperion Quantum Dots material system. Mass production of QDEF products using Hyperion Quantum Dots is expected in early 2017...

DisplayDaily on Nanosys Hyperion™ Quantum Dots

Industry analyst Chris Chinnock visited Nanosys' booth at SID DisplayWeek and walked away impressed with Hyperion Quantum Dots, Nanosys' RoHS compliant solution for BT.2020 displays: 

Nanosys, for example, has developed a “hybrid” solution they call Hyperion Quantum Dots, which mixes cadmium-free red and cadmium-based green quantum dots into a single film. They showed a side-by-side demo on the show floor with identical TVs and image performance (90+% of BT 2020). (...) This should be a big deal as compliance is a big driver in QD adoption. Mass production is expected in early 2017.

Quantum Dots Enable High Dynamic Range TV

On the show floor at SID 2014, Nanosys' 10-foot-by-10-foot booth won a Best in Show award in the small exhibit category.  Nanosys, which makes the quantum dots used in 3M's quantum-dot enhancement film (QDEF), was showing two TV sets side-by-side: one was a conventional LCD TV; the second incorporated both QDEF and Dolby's HDR technology, and the image was compelling. But what does QDEF have to do with HDR?

DisplayMate covers quantum dots in review of latest display tech at the SID show

The Society for Information Display (SID) Display Week Conference held May 20-24 is the display industry's top annual gathering and exhibition. It's not a consumer product show but rather where manufacturers show off their latest and greatest display technology that will make their way into the upcoming generations of consumer products in the near future. I spent most of my time in private meetings rather than cruising the show floor, but here are a number of general interest display products that caught my attention.

Quantum Dots:  A revolutionary new technology that efficiently increases the color saturation and color gamut of LCDs by up to 50 percent for Smartphones, Tablets, HDTVs, and large monitors. Quantum Dots bring LCDs up to parity with OLEDs for color gamut and saturation. They use quantum physics to efficiently translate the color spectrum of the LED backlights for LCDs into precise and narrow red, green, and blue spectra for the LCD panel. This not only efficiently increases the brightness and power efficiency of the display but the narrow spectra should allow the screen's overall reflectance to be reduced. I saw several display prototypes, including some that should be in production in the near future. The leading companies are Nanosys (working with 3M) and QD Vision (already in some Sony TVs). Be on the lookout for them...
