MANCHESTER, England & CONCORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nanoco Group plc (LSE:NANO), a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials, today announced that Dr. Nigel Pickett, Nanoco’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, and Steve Reinhard, Vice President of Business Development, will be featured speakers at the Society for Information Display’s (SID) Display Week Conference in San Francisco, CA, May 22-27, 2016. The annual worldwide event showcases advancements in electronic display technology, and again, quantum dots prove to be one of the standout technologies taking center stage.
As a significant breakthrough in the LCD and display markets, quantum dot technology exploits the power of quantum physics to deliver brilliant color performance in TVs and large displays, as well as LED lighting for a variety of applications, while improving energy efficiency. Until recent years quantum dot technologies were reliant on highly toxic cadmium, hindering the broad adoption of this powerful technology in the display and lighting markets. However, Nanoco’s innovative cadmium-free CFQD® quantum dot technology is free of toxic heavy metals, offering a safe and sustainable mainstream technology for global manufacturers and consumers, giving them all of the performance benefits associated with the technology minus the risks of toxicity and/or regulatory limitations.
During their presentations, Dr. Pickett and Mr. Reinhard will share information about how innovative and cadmium-free quantum dot technology is being increasingly sought after by leading global display and lighting manufacturers. The sessions include:
- Cadmium-Free Quantum Dots in Lighting Applications – During the Quantum Dots/Rods panel tech symposium, Reinhard will present on “Utilization of Heavy Metal-Free Quantum Dots to Enhance Color Quality in Lighting Applications,” Session 20.3 on Wednesday, May 25 at 9:40 – 10:00 a.m. PT (Room 102).
- Cadmium-Free Quantum Dots for Displays and Beyond -- As part of a panel discussion on Quantum Dots Materials, Pickett will present on “Heavy Metal-Free Quantum Dots Making Inroads for Consumer Applications,” Session 34.1 on Wednesday, May 25 at 3:30 – 3:50 pm PT (Room 102).
