    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...
  2. High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Wide Color Gamut (WCG)
    As most regular AVS Forum readers know, quantum dots are becoming increasingly important in the world of flat-panel TVs. Nanosys is at the forefront of QD development, as the company clearly demonstrated at the Display Week 2018 conference this week. To reiterate the basics, quantum dots...
  3. High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Wide Color Gamut (WCG)
    One of the most promising display technologies is quantum dots. At CES 2018, I got a quantum-dot update from Nanosys, one of the main suppliers of quantum dots to the display industry. Quantum dots (QDs) are microscopic spheres of semiconductor material that absorb blue light and emit light...
  4. High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Wide Color Gamut (WCG)
    At the International Display Workshop trade show this week in Sendai, Japan, quantum-dot leader Nanosys and printing-ink giant DIC are announcing a breakthrough that will soon spawn the next generation of QD-based displays. A new process will allow quantum-dot materials to be inkjet printed in...
  5. High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Wide Color Gamut (WCG)
    Of all the trade shows I've attended, DisplayWeek is certainly among the geekiest. The annual confab is produced by SID (Society for Information Display). Its main focus is display technology for all sorts of devices, from mobile phones to commercial signage to TVs and projectors. I'm...
  6. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    The first QLED International Forum was held in Beijing on April 13, 2017. The China Electronics Chamber of Commerce (CECC)—the official regulatory and legislative body for the Chinese electronics industry—hosted the event introducing the QLED TV Alliance. Manufacturers including Samsung, TCL...
  7. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    One of the most interesting meetings I had at CES this year was an update from Nanosys on the future of quantum dots in video displays. As you may know, quantum dots (QDs) are microscopic nanoparticles made of semiconductor material that emit light in a very narrow band of wavelengths when...
  8. AVS Forum® Podcasts
    Two representatives from Nanosys—Charlie Hotz, VP of Research & Development, and Jeff Yurek, Corporate Communications Manager—talk about quantum dots (QDs), including what they are, how they absorb blue light and emit light at a wavelength determined by their size, environmental concerns, the...
  9. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    If you are an AV enthusiast, you have likely heard of quantum dots by now. These nanoscale semiconductor structures—the size of molecules—have optical qualities that are harnessed to vastly expand the color expression available on consumer televisions. During a recent tour of a Nanosys, Inc...
