Nanosys, Hitachi Chemical to develop quantum dot technology

SAN FRANCISCO, US/TOKYO, JAPAN: Nanosys Inc and Hitachi Chemical Co Ltd have partnered in the development of Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) optical films for display applications. Hitachi Chemical plans to begin shipping QDEF to display manufacturers in mass production volumes during the second half of 2016.

This new supply of high quality and cost competitive QDEF will further accelerate the utilisation of quantum dot technology in displays of all types, including UltraHD televisions, monitors and mobile devices.

Nanosys QDEF quantum dot technology makes displays more vivid by enabling pure colours with lifelike brightness using cutting-edge nanotechnology. QDEF is a drop-in film that LCD manufacturers can integrate with existing production processes. It utilises the light emitting properties of quantum dots to create an ideal backlight for LCDs-one of the most critical factors in the colour and efficiency performance of displays.

"Nanosys is the innovative leader in quantum dot technology – always providing the best performance, design and quality to customers," said Hiroyuki Morishima, executive officer, general manager R&D headquarters, Hitachi Chemical. "We plan to begin shipping product in mass production volumes during the second half of 2016."

"Hitachi's proven expertise in design, engineering and manufacturing of products for consumer electronics including state-of-the-art displays make them a perfect partner to help us revolutionise the Quantum Dot Display industry," said Jason Hartlove, president and CEO, Nanosys, Inc. "Together, we expect to accelerate the adoption of brighter, more colourful and environmentally friendly displays that use less energy with quantum dots."
