Quantum dot tech for LCDs underway11 Jun 2012
QDEF is a drop-in film that LCD manufacturers can integrate with existing production processes. It uses the light emitting properties of quantum dots to create an ideal backlight for LCDs.
A quantum dot, which is 10,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair, can emit light at a very precise wavelength. The ability to control the spectral output of a quantum dot allows QDEF to create an ideal white backlight specifically designed for LCDs. Trillions of these quantum dots are packaged into a thin film that fits inside an LCD backlight unit. QDEF replaces a similar film already found inside LCD backlights, which means that adding QDEF to manufacturing processes requires no new equipment or process changes for the LCD manufacturer.
