When it comes to displays and lighting, consumers have a lot of choices to select from. The options shift, though, when different markets are considered. Smartphones, for example, are split between organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and LCDs. TVs have a wider range of options, with quantum dots (QD) making gains. Lighting has LEDs as a growing technology, while OLED and QD are trying to make some headway.
Quantum dots offer numerous advantages in its markets. It offers better colors gamut and is becoming more affordable. As a result, quantum dots have made significant gains in the TV and display segment.
“In TV, QDs are used as color converters in LCD panels (ie, the QD convert the light from the blue LED backlight unit into ultrapure red and green) ,” said Dr. Eric Virey, senior market and technology analyst – LED, Sapphire & Display for Yole Développement, a market research & strategy consulting company. “QD-LCD volumes could rea
