8.5 Quantum dot LED
Quantum dot (QLED) employs quantum dots in order to achieve significantly higher efficiency of device.
|QLED displays promise better color reproduction, energy efficiency and cheaper manufacturing costs than OLED.||QLED lightplates|
It allows designers to make ultra-thin, flexible, and even transparent
It delivers 30 - 40% luminance (brightness) efficiency advantage
QLEDs have potential to be more efficient than OLEDs (> 2 times)
Ability to print large-area of QLEDs on ultra-thin flexible substrates
- tunable colour solution for displays and lighting
- price-effective manufacture
- ultra-thin, transparent, flexible devices
QLED will be commercially available approx. in 2014.
