Inside The Quantum Dot

Quantum dots, a relatively new and emerging technology, are creating a buzz in the industry. Basically, when inserted into an LCD TV, quantum dots can boost the color gamut in the display, enabling vivid picture quality with relatively little capital. Quantum dots can also be used in other applications, such as solar and LED lighting. To get a handle on the technology, Semiconductor Enginee... » read more

Chasing After Quantum Dots

In the 1980s, researchers stumbled upon a tiny particle or nanocrystal with unique electrical properties. These mysterious nanocrystals, which are based on semiconductor materials, were later named quantum dots. Quantum dots were curiosity items until 2013, when Sony launched the world’s first LCD TV using these inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals. Basically, when inserted into an LCD TV,... » read more
