LEDs Magazine: Nanosys targets LED-backlit applications

While LED makers have made great strides in the efficacy of white LEDs, the products still don't output pure warm white light that's comparable to other technologies. Quantum-dot technology, however, can serve to improve light quality in both LED-based backlight and general illumination applications.A number of startup companies around the globe are developing quantum-dot technology for applications ranging from lighting to military to biotech.
