Quantum Dots

Display makers are looking for UltraHD BT.2020 color technologies that deliver high brightness with no compromise. They are looking for Nanosys. Our state-of-the-art Quantum Dot technology delivers unmatched BT.2020 color, lifelike brightness and unparalleled power efficiency at a fraction of the cost of OLEDs.

Nanosys produces the world’s highest performance Quantum Dot materials at the most competitive cost. Since our founding in 2001, we’ve been working to improve the brightness, color purity and lifetime of our Quantum Dots for better performance, easier integration and lower-cost implementation.


QDEF™ (Quantum Dot Enhancement Film) is a thin film for LCDs based on Nanosys proprietary photo-luminescent Quantum Dots. The first QDEF-enabled product hit the market in 2013 in the Kindle Fire HDX 7” tablet. Now, just a few years later, our QDEF™ technology is being deployed in displays of all types and sizes, from mobile devices all the way up to 88-inch TVs and beyond.
QDEF™ offers LCD makers OLED-like performance in a low-cost package that requires zero capex investment


QDCC is a display component with pixelated green and red quantum dots aligned with blue light source pixels. It converts blue source light into green or red at the outermost surface of displays. Nanosys’ proprietary QDCC technology can deliver the best picture qualities with perfect 180 degree viewing angle, high efficiency and the highest color gamut.
Pixelation of green and red Quantum Dots can be achieved via either photo lithography or ink jet printing, which provides display makers flexibility. QDCC is based on Nanosys’ 100% Heavy Metal Free Quantum Dot technology.
QDCC-LCD is in development and QD inks and photoresists are available from select Nanosys partners.


Quantum Dot Electro Luminescent technology, is the future of Quantum Dots. Electroluminescent Quantum Dots are similar to OLED devices in that the Quantum Dots convert electricity into photons. Unlike OLEDs, QDEL displays can be made using the lowest cost printing techniques, offer the robust reliability of inorganic materials and can be tuned to meet any color specification. Nanosys announced record-setting external quantum efficiency (EQE) of greater than 10% for red, green and blue Heavy Metal Free QDEL materials, an industry first.
Nanosys is partnering with the world’s leading emissive display companies to develop QDEL displays. We are focused on developing only100% Heavy Metal Free Quantum Dots for this application.
