The future of cadmium free QD display technology (QD TV ™) Display technology moved on from the bulky cathode ray tube units (CRTs) to plasma screens and liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and now organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) offer an attractive alternative to all these earlier technologies. Quantum dots (QDs) are both photo active (photoluminescent) and electro active (electroluminescent) and because of their unique physical characteristics they can be readily incorporated into OLED displays. The significant benefits OLEDs offer include:
