Join us at IDW in Japan on December 14 at 2:50pm. Our partner DIC will present an update on our collaboration on Heavy-metal free Quantum Dot Inkjet Printing for Color Conversion Devices in OLEDs, microLEDs and LCDs.Read More
David Savastano of Printed Electronics Now recently sat down with Nanosys and DIC executives to discuss their successful collaboration to develop ink jet printed Quantum Dots for displays. The breakthrough could change the way displays are made, bringing better efficiency and color to displays of all types from LCD to OLED to microLED. According to Russell Kempt, Nanosys Vice President of Sales and Marketing:
“We expect to see the first printed devices in the market within the next two years,” Kempt added. “Looking ahead, printed quantum dots can also help solve manufacturing yield issues for microLED displays, which today rely on a complex ‘pick and place’ process to create all three colors from millions of individual LEDs. With printed quantum dots we can simply the system, accelerating microLED technology’s path to market over the next couple of years.Read More
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."Read More
Milpitas, Calif., and Tokyo, Japan, December 5, 2017 – Nanosys and DIC today announced a breakthrough in inkjet-printed Quantum Dot color conversion devices for LCD and emissive displays, paving the way to the $12.6 billion anticipated market for low cost, ultra-thin and flexible displays. Inkjet printing of Quantum Dot color conversion layers has the potential to dramatically improve the incumbent LCD technology, as well as accelerate the development of emerging emissive display technologies such as microLEDs.Read More
