About Quantum Dots (QD)
QDs are semiconductor nanocrystals that possess unique light emitting optical properties. The emission wavelength spectrum of QD light can be tuned to create almost any color of the visible spectrum as defined by the CIE 1931 color space. QDs have very narrow light emission properties enabling a wider color gamut, resulting in higher color fidelity and improved backlight performance.
QD Vision's Color IQ™ quantum dot technology improves the color quality of TVs, monitors and other displays by delivering full-gamut, 100% NTSC color accuracy, tunability and high-volume manufacturability at a low price point. Quantum dots are the only display technology that provides both 100% NTSC color and Energy Efficiency Index (EEI) compliance.
