Nanosys Hyperion Quantum Dots Wins SID Display Week 2017 Component of the Year Award
Nanosys has won the SID Display Week 2017 Component of the Year Award for it's Hyperion Quantum Dot technology. These new quantum dots enable displays to meet the BT.2020 ultra-high-definition (UHD) color standard without requiring an exemption to the Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive issued by the European Union. The Hyperion quantum dots combine a Cd-free red quantum dot with a green quantum dot whose Cd content and emission spectrum are very low. This has allowed Nanosys to demonstrate >90 percent BT.2020 color gamut using Hyperion in a quantum-dot enhancement film (QDEF) sheet with Cd levels below the RoHS ceiling of 100 parts-per-million (ppm). Nanosys has partnered with Hitachi Chemical to begin immediate production of QDEF with Hyperion quantum dots.
