QD Vision, LG Display to Develop QLED-Based Displays
WATERTOWN, Mass., Dec. 2, 2010 — QD Vision Inc. and LG Display Co. Ltd. (LGD) of Seoul, South Korea, have announced a joint agreement to develop highly efficient, high-performance active-matrix displays based on electroluminescent quantum dot LED (QLED) nanotechnology. The displays are expected to require much less energy than current products, while producing brighter, richer colors.
The new products will use patterned thin films of QD Vision quantum dots to create a direct-view, active-matrix display. The technology also is expected to lower display manufacturing costs by simplifying the creative process.
“This partnership with QD Vision will accelerate development of exciting new LGD products for the rapidly expanding display marketplace and increase our industry leadership position,” said Chang-Dong Kim, vice president of LG Display.
Quantum dots provide the stability and reliability of inorganic semiconductor materials and can be processed in solution, enabling the manufacture of next-generation electroluminescent displays with extraordinary color.
“The continuing advances in nanotechnology at QD Vision are the key to a whole new generation of displays that are far superior to what is available today," said Jason Carlson, QD Vision president and CEO. "Our relationship with LG Display will result in exciting new products that meet growing consumer demand for ultrathin, high-quality, energy-efficient displays.”
