A new paper from Nanosys in the latest issue of SID's InformationDisplay magazine breaks down the full roadmap for next-generation Quantum Dot technologies from QDEF to QDOG to QD-on-OLED to QDEL. Great pre-CES reading.Read More
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.Read More
Consumers shopping for a new TV or mobile device today are faced with a wide array of display technology options. From curved vs flat to Quantum Dot vs LED vs OLED vs Micro LED... the choice is no longer as simple as LED vs Plasma.
Yong-Seog Kim, President, Society for Information Display, is trying to get to the bottom of this question. To do this, he's reached out to the top technology companies behind the latest, greatest display tech to ask them directly "what's the difference between all these new display technologies?"
A compilation of Dr. Kim's interviews has just been posted at Electronic Design and Nanosys is the featured representative for Quantum Dots.Read More
Industry analyst Chris Chinnock visited Nanosys' booth at SID DisplayWeek and walked away impressed with Hyperion Quantum Dots, Nanosys' RoHS compliant solution for BT.2020 displays:
Nanosys, for example, has developed a “hybrid” solution they call Hyperion Quantum Dots, which mixes cadmium-free red and cadmium-based green quantum dots into a single film. They showed a side-by-side demo on the show floor with identical TVs and image performance (90+% of BT 2020). (...) This should be a big deal as compliance is a big driver in QD adoption. Mass production is expected in early 2017.Read More
Consumer Electronics Daily caught up with Nanosys CEO Jason Hartlove at DisplayWeek for a great interview on the current state of Quantum Dot and OLED technologies for TV
“Four years ago, “if you came to one of these conferences, no one talked about wide color gamut,” Hartlove said. “Absolutely no one. Everyone told me I was crazy to even think that wide color gamut was something that people would be interested in. So there we were four years ago, a little voice in the wind, talking about how this was an important attribute.” Instead, back then, “everyone was talking about how OLED’s black level was awesome,” he said. “But fundamentally, that’s not something that matters to people. It’s not so much a question of how our campaign is doing, but it’s a question more of whether or not the thing that we are offering has a value that resonates with people. Fundamentally, we know, a lot of user study, a lot of data that 3M has collected, a lot of data that our other partners have collected, that shows that absolutely people prefer when their set is able to render colors in a more lifelike fashion."Read More
3M Display Materials and Systems Division announced the company has developed technology solutions addressing the Rec. 2020 standard for color enhanced UHD displays at SID Display Week. In San Jose, Calif., 3M is showcasing flat panel displays of all sizes with up to 93.7 percent Rec. 2020 color gamut, one of the largest known color gamuts in any display, in an otherwise commercially available 4K LCD monitor.
“Rec. 2020 color performance was thought to be in the distant future, but with the addition of Quantum Dot technology and the 3M Quantum Dot Enhancement Film, this performance is available today,” said James Thielen, 3M Product Development Specialist and SID Display Week symposium speaker.Read More
On the show floor at SID 2014, Nanosys' 10-foot-by-10-foot booth won a Best in Show award in the small exhibit category. Nanosys, which makes the quantum dots used in 3M's quantum-dot enhancement film (QDEF), was showing two TV sets side-by-side: one was a conventional LCD TV; the second incorporated both QDEF and Dolby's HDR technology, and the image was compelling. But what does QDEF have to do with HDR?Read More
Companies to Develop Quantum Dot Technology for LCDs
Palo Alto, Calif., and St. Paul, Minn., June 6, 2012 – Nanosys Inc. and the Optical Systems Division of 3M Company are joining technologies to provide wide color gamut technology for consumer electronic displays, allowing Liquid Crystal Displays (“LCDs”) to display 50 percent more color.
3M and Nanosys will work together to commercialize Nanosys’ Quantum Dot Enhancement Film™ (“QDEF”) technology. QDEF is a drop-in film that LCD manufacturers can integrate with existing production processes. It utilizes the light emitting properties of quantum dots to create an ideal backlight for LCDs -- one of the most critical factors in the color and efficiency performance of LCDs.Read More
Nanosys, Inc., an advanced materials architect, today received the 2012 Display Industry Awards Gold Display Component of the Year for its Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) from the Society for Information Display (SID).Read More
Nanosys, RealD and Samsung Recognized as Standout Exhibitor Products and Technologies

These awards were created to highlight the most significant new products and technologies showcased on the exhibit floor during the 49th annual SID International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition, currently underway this week at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Best in Show awards are being presented today during the annual SID luncheon at Display Week 2011, where the winners of the venerable Display of the Year awards are also being honored.Read More
Announces the Release of First of Its Kind QDEFTM High Color Gamut Optical Film for LCDs, Ushers in New Era in Content Creation and Experience
Palo Alto, Calif., May 17, 2011 – Nanosys, Inc., an advanced materials architect, today announced that its next generation LCD technology, the Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEFTM), is available to display manufacturers. Device designers can now increase color gamut by as much as 3x without making the trade offs in cost, size and brightness they’ve had to make in the past. This means richer, more viscerally vibrant reds and a deeper palette of greens – the color the human eye sees more intensely than any other color.Read More
