South China Morning Post: Nanosys develops alternatives for rare earths used in televisions

Nanosys CEO Jason Hartlove recently spoke with reporter Chad Bray of South China Morning Post about how Quantum Dots can replace rare-earths in displyas, rapid growth of the technology in the display market and how tariffs could impact the company’s business:

“We have actually added a significant amount of capacity in our plant and so we are looking forward to filling that up in the coming years. Our overall volume, of material that we're shipping to customers, has been growing by more than 50 per cent a year,” Hartlove said. “We foresee that that's just going to continue on the basis of better performance [of our products] than your white LED phosphors, traditional rare earth phosphors.”

Business Korea: QLED TVs Outsell OLED TVs from Top 5 Makers Put Together

Kim Eun-jin, writing for Business Korea:

QLED TV sales totaled 896,400 units in the first quarter of this year, dwarfing the combined sales of 569,600 units by the top five OLED TV makers – LG Electronics, Sony, Panasonic, Philips (AOC/TP Vision) and Skyworth, market researcher IHS Markit said on May 29…

IHS Markit predicted that QLED TV sales would continue to outpace OLED TV sales by 2022. Last year, QLED TVs sold 2.67 million units, outclassing OLED TVs’ 2.51 million units. The trend would hold in 2022 (10.46 million units of QLED TVs vs. 9.35 million units of OLED TVs), IHS Markit added.

DisplayDaily: Nanosys Shows Hisense Dual-Cell QD TV at Display Week; Coming to Market in 2020

Ken Werner, writing for DisplayDaily, on Nanosys demo of the Hisense ULED XD at DisplayWeek 2019

“Dual-cell LCD TV Panels were on display in the Display Week booths of several panel makers… The technology can produce OLED-like performance at low and medium luminance, and LCD-like performance at high luminance. The initial concerns have been cost and power consumption.

In its booth, Nanosys showed a prototype of the Hisense ULED XD TV using a dual-cell panel and Nanosys quantum dots. The set looked startlingly good, as did the dual-cell panels showed by BOE and CSOT. But this was a full-up TV set, not just a panel, and Hisense has told Jeff Yurek of Nanosys that the set will be available for sale in 2020.”

DisplayDaily: SID Review

Bob Raikes, writing for DisplayDaily on Nanosys SID DisplayWeek presence:

“…a demonstration by Nanosys of its electrically emissive QDs which are now available in a range of colours and it planned to give a paper on this topic with its development partner. It was the identity of this partner that was the surprise - it's LG Display. Of course, the promise of QDs is compelling. The materials might replace OLED materials, but with better colour, higher brightness and longer lifetime, without burning. The paper was still to be presented when I wrote this, but we'll come back to this topic, without doubt.”

Electroluminescent Quantum Dots are Coming Sooner Than You Think

Scott Wilkinson, writing for AVS Forum on the QDEL paper Nanosys and LG Display co-authored for SID DisplayWeek:

“Quantum dots are the hottest thing to hit display technology in a very long time. These nano-scale particles emit light at very specific wavelengths in response to various stimuli. They can be used in several ways within video-display devices, some of which are now available to consumers, while other applications are still under development…

Among the companies at the forefront of this effort is Nanosys. Its photoluminescent quantum dots (PL QDs) are used in LCD TVs from Hisense, JVC, Philips, Samsung, TCL, and Vizio as well as computer monitors from Acer, ASUS, HP, and Philips. But the company knows that EL QDs are the ultimate future of QD-based displays.

In collaboration with LG Display—LG’s panel-manufacturing and R&D subsidiary, not to be confused with LG Electronics, which markets finished TVs—Nanosys will present a major paper on the subject of EL QDs at DisplayWeek 2019, the annual confab of SID (Society for Information Display).”
