Nanosys Inc Key Developments

Nanosys Introduces Hyperion™ Quantum Dots to Unlock Displays Meeting BT.2020 Color with High Brightness and Power Efficiency

Nanosys Inc. introduced Hyperion Quantum Dots, a new Quantum Dot material system that represents a significant development breakthrough in unlocking the market for displays meeting the BT.2020 UltraHD color standard. Hyperion Quantum Dots match the color performance of the industry's best cadmium-based materials without requiring an exemption to the European Union's Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. Hyperion Quantum Dots will be evaluated by select Nanosys QDEF manufacturing partners in the third quarter of 2016 with mass production of QDEF products using Hyperion Quantum Dots expected in early 2017. Hyperion Quantum Dots integrate seamlessly into Nanosys' current QDEF™ Quantum Dot enhancement film manufacturing process. Nanosys has demonstrated over 90% BT.2020 color gamut using Hyperion Quantum Dots in a sheet of QDEF with cadmium levels below the 100ppm limit established by the RoHS Directive, thereby eliminating the need for an exemption. This is accomplished by combining an entirely cadmium free red Quantum Dot with a green Quantum Dot engineered to have an exceptionally narrow emission spectrum and ultra-low cadmium content.

Nanosys and Hitachi Chemical Partner to Accelerate Adoption of Quantum Dot Technology for Displays

Nanosys Inc. announced that Hitachi Chemical and Nanosys have partnered in the development of QDEF optical films for display applications. Hitachi Chemical plans to begin shipping QDEF to display manufacturers in mass production volumes during the second half of 2016. This new supply of high quality and cost competitive QDEF will further accelerate the utilization of Quantum Dot technology in displays of all types, including UltraHD televisions, monitors and mobile devices. Nanosys QDEF Quantum Dot technology makes displays more vivid by enabling pure colors with lifelike brightness using cutting-edge nanotechnology. QDEF is a drop-in film that LCD manufacturers can integrate with existing production processes. It utilizes the light emitting properties of Quantum Dots to create an ideal backlight for LCDs.
