Quantum dots (QDs) are a commercial success for nanotechnology. They are already used in display applications. Importantly, the QD technology and application landscape is rapidly evolving.
Display and lighting
QDs in displays is not a new story. They are being used to widen the colour gamut of LCDs, enabling such devices to compete with high-quality OLEDs in terms of performance, whilst largely retaining the cost structure character of LCDs. The use of QDs has created an interesting market dynamic especially in the large-sized – such as TV – end of the market.
Nanoco Group Plc (LON:NANO) leads the world in the research, development and large-scale manufacture of heavy-metal free quantum dots and semiconductor nanoparticles for use in displays, lighting, solar energy and bio-imaging.
