Quantum Dot Applications in OLED Displays:
A new display technology is revolutionizing an industry that has been dominated for the past three decades by liquid-crystal displays (LCDs). Now organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) offer an attractive alternative to earlier technologies. Quantum dots (QDs) are both photo active (photo luminescent) and electro active (electroluminescent) and because of their unique physical characteristics they can be readily incorporated into OLED displays.
OLEDs are display devices that enclose a series of organic films between the cathode and anode. They do not require backlighting, yet, are emissive. This, therefore, allows smaller and more efficient displays that make them ideal for compact applications, such as cell phone displays, digital camera displays, MP3 displays, and thin large format displays (flat panel TVs).
Advantages of QD-LEDs over conventional OLEDs:
Of particular interest to the display industry is mastering of the quantum dot-based LED (QD-LED) technology for the purpose of developing low-cost, efficient, bright, color-saturated, large-area color displays compatible with flexible substrates. High expectations regarding this type of display result from the superior performance of QD-LEDs with respect to conventional display devices, such as cathode-ray tubes (CRTs), liquid crystal displays (LCDs), and organic light-emitting-diodes (OLEDs). An extra benefit of QD-LEDs over OLEDs is the fact that quantum dots are inorganic, and as such they offer the potential for improved lifetimes when compared to alternative OLED technologies.
CAFS manufacturing is the only practical solution:
Providing quantum dot visible emitters at electronic grade will enable revolutionary advances in the display industry, providing a solution for a wide range of commercial applications. Irilliant is a pioneer in the synthesis of good quality, stable quantum dots, emitting light in the visible spectrum. Furthermore, our revolutionary manufacturing process will be capable of meeting the cost-reduction demands commercial applications such as production of flat panel TVs.
