Advances in Displays: Quantum dot film lets LCDs express 50% more color

With Quantum Dot Enhancement Film, LCD makers now have an efficient mechanism for integrating quantum dots into their manufacturing processes.

After decades of research and development, the first liquid-crystal displays containing quantum dots (QDs)—molecule-sized spheres of semiconductor materials—are coming to market. These displays will have the ability to express as much as 50% more color than earlier LCDs, resulting in color performance approximately equal to or exceeding that offered by commercialized organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays.

LCD makers are exploring several technologies for integrating QDs into their manufacturing processes. 3M's Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (3M QDEF) is proving to be an efficient and durable mechanism.
