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
The image quality of OLED is, theoretically, under pressure from new LCD screens enhanced with quantum dot technology.Read More
In 2014 the most significant development for high-end LCDs will be the increased adoption of Quantum Dots by many more manufacturers, which will improve the Color Gamut, Color Accuracy, display power efficiency, brightness and/or the running time on battery for mobile displays.Read More
"Apple has recently given up the lead in displays -- now Amazon, Google, LG, and Samsung are launching products with the best and most innovative displays."
He cited the example of an emerging LCD technology called Quantum Dots that Amazon has tapped for the Kindle Fire HDX 7 (now $199 at Amazon).
"Quantum Dots are going to revolutionize and reenergize LCDs for the next 5+ years," he wrote. "While they have been under development for many years, in 2013 they made it out of the labs and into consumer products: in some models of Sony Bravia TVs...and in the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7, with Quantum Dots from Nanosys," he said.
Quantum Dot displays produce highly saturated primary colors that are similar to those produced by OLED displays, according to Soneira.Read More
ST. PAUL, Minn.--3M announced today it is in the final stages of scale-up for its new 3M™ Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF). The new film allows up to 50 percent more color than current levels in liquid crystal display (LCD) devices. 3M has teamed with Nanosys, Inc., to produce the 3M QDEF solution specifically to deliver more color, and to make devices such as smart phones, tablets and televisions, lighter, brighter and more energy efficient.Read More
