Welcome to the World in Color
Nanosys is changing the way we see things. Our quantum dot technology creates a visual experience that is truer to reality by enabling LCDs to display over 50% more color than they can today. This means richer, more viscerally alive reds, a deeper palette of greens (the color the human eye sees more intensely than any other color) and vivid blues. Browsing through photos on a tablet is now more like holding a stack of high quality, professional prints. Watching a movie on a big screen in the living room is more akin to attending a private screening at a Hollywood studio.
Quantum Dot Enhancement Film, or QDEF™, is an optical film component for LCD displays.
Advancements in display technology have given us LCD displays that are smaller, lighter, cheaper and higher resolution than anything previously imagined. Unfortunately, the industry sacrificed color quality along the way. Today’s LCDs are only capable of displaying about 72% of the NTSC color standard. This is a step backwards from old-fashioned CRT displays, which were capable of displaying nearly 100% of the NTSC standard. With QDEF technology, we are able to restore the color experience of displays, increasing color performance to over 100% of NTSC without sacrificing size, weight, picture quality or cost of the display.
QDEF utilizes proprietary quantum dot phosphors to improve the color performance of the display. It can be readily inserted into current manufacturing processes as a direct replacement for standard diffuser sheets.
LCD displays with QDEF technology use less energy and cost significantly less than other high performance display technology like OLED.
Nanosys is working with the world’s leading display makers to integrate QDEF into consumer products.
