QLEDs -- The Future
Quantum dot light emitting diodes (QLEDs) represent an advanced electroluminescent technology currently in the development stage that will lead to the next generation of electronic displays and solid-state lighting applications. QLEDs are a reliable, energy efficient, tunable color solution for display and lighting applications that reduce manufacturing costs, while employing ultra-thin, transparent or flexible materials. Still in the early stages of commercialization, QLEDs can already be used in certain defense and security related products that require precision color solutions in an ultra-slim form factor, including monochrome visible and infrared displays, and lighting devices for machine and night vision applications.
QLEDs bring numerous benefits to the solid state lighting and display markets, including:
- Pure color -- Will deliver 30-40% luminance efficiency advantage over organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) at the same color point.
- Low power consumption -- QLEDs have the potential to be more than twice as power efficient as OLEDs at the same color purity.
- Low-cost manufacture -- The ability to print large-area QLEDs on ultra-thin flexible substrates will reduce luminaire manufacturing cost.
- Ultrathin, transparent, flexible form factors -- QLEDs will enable designers to develop new display and lighting forms not possible with existing technologies.
The unique combination of extraordinary color, high efficiency, form factor and solution-processability makes QD Vision’s QLEDs a breakthrough electroluminescent technology for next generation electronic displays and solid-state lighting applications.
QD Vision’s quantum dot light emitting diodes (QLEDs) are an advanced technology currently in development that will deliver the ultimate solution for displays and lighting applications. At the heart of QLEDs are electroluminescent colloidal quantum dots that combine the customizable, saturated, stable color and low-voltage performance found in inorganic LEDs with the solution processability of polymers.More »
