Introduction to Quantum Dots for Displays

If you followed the tech news coming out of Las Vegas this January, there's a good chance you've heard the term "Quantum Dot." Top TV brands from Samsung to TCL to Vizio all launched new sets for 2019 touting the color and brightness advantages of Quantum Dots.

What's the buzz all about? Is Quantum Dot just another marketing slogan or a true revolution in image quality?

This talk will provide an introduction to Quantum Dot technology for displays with a look at how it works including hands-on demonstrations of the latest Quantum Dot materials and components. We'll also discuss the next phase of Quantum Dot technology development. Including future display applications such as Quantum Dot on OLED, integrations with microLEDs and direct emissive QD-LED technologies.
