DisplayWeek 2018 is only one week away!
Nanosys is getting ready for a busy week of talks and demonstrations of the latest Quantum Dot technology and materials innovations.
The company will exhibit at Booth 737 from May 21 to 23 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Nanosys executives will also participate in several technical talks and sessions throughout the week. Continue reading for a full list…
The Nanosys dot-color blogrecently launched a new weekly series called #WideColorWednesday. Each week they'll be doing a color gamut analysis of a new image, showing just how common true, "wide color gamut" colors are in the world around us.
Catch-up on the first couple of posts here and follow-along on twitter via @dot-color for future updates...
Phillips just launched the world's first monitor with the HDR 1000 Certification. The monitor is able to deliver an incredible 1,000 nits of peak luminance and 97.6% DCI-P3 thanks to the Quantum Dots technology inside.
New Quantum Dot products hitting the market always excites us so we've summed up some of the comments from different media sources below.
"Without question, the best display Vizio has ever built... [the] P-Series Quantum enthralled with us with bursts of beautiful, bright colors that can only come from quantum dot panels."
Vizio just announced one of the best, and brightest, Quantum Dot TVs of 2018. According to Vizio, their all-new P-Series Quantum flagship delivers an incredible 2,000 nits of peak luminance and truly cinematic color thanks in part to the Quantum Dot technology inside.
We're always excited to see great new Quantum Dot products hit the market so we've rounded up some of the most notable excerpts from the first Vizio P-Series Quantum reviews below.
Nanosys, will showcase the company’s latest advances in its Quantum Dot technologies and materials at the 2018 International Conference on Display Technology (ICDT), being held from April 9-12, 2018 in Guangzhou, China.
Nanosys General Manager of Applications Engineering, Dr. ZhongSheng Luo, will lead a Seminar focused on Quantum Dot display technologies on Monday, April 9 from 14:00 to 16:00 in Room 3. His presentation, titled “Quantum Dots: Perfecting Display Colors,” will provide update on the current and developing state of operation principles, unique properties, potential applications, and future R&D trends for Quantum Dot displays.
David Savastano of Printed Electronics Now recently sat down with Nanosys and DIC executives to discuss their successful collaboration to develop ink jet printed Quantum Dots for displays. The breakthrough could change the way displays are made, bringing better efficiency and color to displays of all types from LCD to OLED to microLED. According to Russell Kempt, Nanosys Vice President of Sales and Marketing:
“We expect to see the first printed devices in the market within the next two years,” Kempt added. “Looking ahead, printed quantum dots can also help solve manufacturing yield issues for microLED displays, which today rely on a complex ‘pick and place’ process to create all three colors from millions of individual LEDs. With printed quantum dots we can simply the system, accelerating microLED technology’s path to market over the next couple of years.
This week on our blog, we weighed in on an important scientific debate. Are tennis balls green or yellow?
"According to tennis legend Roger Federer, tennis balls are very definitely yellow. He’s certainly an expert when it comes to tennis but how is his color accuracy? We applied some basic science to answer this important question once and for all. The answer might surprise you..."
Nanomaterials and quantum dot scientist and consultant, Pete Palomaki and co-author Matthew Bertram explain how different display nanotechnologies work in their latest blog post.
Bob Myers, writing for Android Authority, talks about the promising future of Quantum Dots for displays and how the technology can truly be a quantum leap for the display industry.
"It wouldn’t be at all surprising if quantum-dot displays — both LCD-based and those using QDs as basic emissive elements — become dominant across the electronic display industry in relatively short order. It’s actually quite possible that OLEDs, once hailed as the next big technology, could be bypassed without ever getting close to a majority share in the market.
Truly, a quantum leap for the industry."
The latest issue of IEEE Spectrum features an in-depth article, co-authored by Nanosys, on the exciting roadmap for Quantum Dot technology in displays. From enhancing LCDs to microLED integration to low cost, printed and flexible Quantum Dot displays, it's all here:
The future of the television set was supposed to be simple. At some point in the near future, LCDs were supposed to become obsolete and give way to bright, sharp, and incredibly thin OLED displays. It turns out that the near future of TVs isn’t going to be so simple—but it sure is going to be bright.
The reason? Quantum dots.
The Quantum Dot market will reach $16.6 Billion by 2028 according to a new report by Dr. Jennifer Colegrove of Touch Display Research:
“The quantum dot industry changed dramatically in 2017. Samsung/Harman is expanding QLED to automotive application. Apple just entered quantum dot market. We forecast quantum dot industry will have rapid growth in the next several years.”
According to the IHS market, the large TFT display market grew significantly in 2017, reaching $63.7 billion in revenue. Thanks to increasing demand for large displays and high end products such as Quantum Dot displays, the market expanded in all three aspects -- unit shipments, area shipments and revenue. Robin Wu, principal analyst at IHS Markit:
"Revenue growth was higher than that of area shipments, which was again bigger than that of unit shipments. This indicates that the display market is moving to larger screens in all applications, and the penetration of high specification products with a higher price tag, such as high resolution, wide viewing angle and slim design panels, has increased.”
Nanosys VP of R&D Dr. Charlie Hotz will be speaking at the 2018 Quantum Dot Forum in San Diego this March. In a recent interview with the show organizers, Dr. Hotz discusses the future of Cadmium free quantum dot technology.

Ken Werner, writing for DisplayDaily, talks about Harman's new innovative use of quantum dot displays for high end automotive applications. In a CES 2018 demonstration, a QLED quantum dot display was paired with an OLED display inside a dark Maserati and the QLED display with local dimming did not show any sign of visual mismatch against the OLED.
"Rashmi Rao, Harman Senior Director of Advanced Systems and User Experience, explained that for a high-end car like the Maserati, Harman selected the best-performing display technology for the critical instrument cluster, while the large QLED display still offers very good performance at a significantly lower cost than OLED. Rao commented that the QLED does a good job of integrating visually with the OLED. A conventional LCD would present an obvious visual mismatch with the OLED. The system in the Maserati was fully functional but is not yet in a shipping automobile."
