AVS Forum: Nanosys Quantum Dots at Display Week 2018

Scott Wilkinson writing on AVS Forum giving an update on Nanosys Quantum Dot technology after visiting the Nanosys booth at SID DIsplay Week 2018.

"Nanosys is at the forefront of QD development, as the company clearly demonstrated at the Display Week 2018 conference this week... Quantum dots hold great promise for the future of flat-panel TVs and even microLED displays, and I look forward to bringing you all the latest QD news as I learn it."

AVS Forum: Nanosys and DIC Announce Inkjet-Printed Quantum-Dot Process

Scott Wilkinson of AVSForum posted a great write-up this week on the news about Nanosys and DIC's breakthrough for inkjet-printed Quantum Dot color conversion devices:

"Color-filter replacement (CFR), also known as color conversion, offers many benefits. Among them is greater power efficiency, which translates to as much as 300% higher brightness. Other benefits include a wider color gamut and 180-degree viewing angle.

Inkjet-printed quantum dots will also hasten the development of electro-emissive QD displays, in which quantum-dot subpixels emit light directly under electrical stimulation—no backlight needed. This is still a few years away from commercialization, but the Nanosys/DIC announcement paves the way for this exciting development."

AVS Forum: Nanosys Quantum Dots at DisplayWeek 2017

Scott Wilkinson, writing for AVS Forum, highlights Nanosys announcements at DisplayWeek 2017 including next-generation Photo-Emissive display tech and the company's Component of the Year Award for Hyperion Quantum Dots:

One of the booths I visited this year was Nanosys, maker of quantum dots and QD films used by Samsung, Vizio, TCL, Hisense, and others in high-end LCD TVs. At CES last January, I wrote about the company’s plan to replace the tiny red and green color filters in LCD TVs with red and green quantum dots. Light from blue LEDs in the backlight stimulate the QDs to glow red or green, and the amount of light emitted by each subpixel is modulated by the LCD shutter associated with that subpixel.

AVS Forum: "TCL and Hisense are gearing up to join the QLED party in a big way"

Mark Henninger, writing for AVS Forum:

The opening address of the Forum, given by CECC Vice Chairman Liu Yufeng, noted that about 3 million QLED TVs sold in 2017 and expectations are that number will double in 2017 to 6 million. Even more dramatically, there’s an expectation that sales of QLEDs will triple in 2018 and exceed 18 million units. Sounds to me like TCL and Hisense are gearing up to join the QLED party in a big way.

Nanosys Quantum Dot Technology at CES 2016

Nanosys is one of the companies providing quantum-dot technology to display manufacturers, including Vizio and Hisense/Sharp, all of which use Nanosys' QDEF film in some of their FALD LED-LCD TVs for 2016. In addition, Nanosys has licensed its technology to Samsung since 2010. (Interestingly, Samsung called this technology Nano Crystal in 2015, but at this year's CES, it switched to the more common name of quantum dots.)

In the Nanosys suite at the Westgate hotel, I saw several cool demos,
