Quantum dots brighten the future of flat panel displays
Colloidal quantum dots are typically between 2 and 10 nm in diameter with applications in thin-film devices such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs). They have profound implications for flat-panel displays, promising to improve efficiency and power consumption with enhanced brightness and colour saturation. Despite their first appearing almost 40 years ago, colloidal quantum dots have yet to make significant headway in next-generation displays due to their low external quantum efficiency. The EU-funded CQWLED project will address this efficiency limitation with LEDs based on hybrid lead halide perovskites. Their unrivalled photophysical properties offer great potential for high-efficiency and long-lifetime in LED technology to produce displays that can fulfil the Rec. 2020 colour gamut, a milestone no company has been able to achieve.
