Nanostart-holding Nanosys Unlocks Full Colour LCD Viewing Experience with Nanotechnology

Frankfurt, Germany and Palo Alto, CA | Posted on May 18th, 2011

Nanostart (OTCQX: NASRY)-holding Nanosys, Inc., an advanced materials architect, announced that its next generation LCD technology, the Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEFTM), is available to display manufacturers. Device designers can now increase colour gamut by as much as three times without making the trade offs in cost, size and brightness they've had to make in the past. This means richer, more viscerally vibrant reds and a deeper palette of greens - the colour the human eye sees more intensely than any other colour.

"Almost all content available today has to be dialed down to match the limited capabilities of current displays, but with a QDEF enabled display developers and producers can create a photo-quality colour experience for the user."
QDEF represents the first time that quantum dot technology is available to display makers in an optical film, which can be scaled to any size including large televisions. The current generation of displays in smartphones, tablets, laptops and large format TVs can only express 20 to 35 percent of the colours the human eye can see. QDEF displays will unleash a whole new level of content creation and revolutionize user experience by delivering over 60 percent of visible colours.

"We believe colour will be a significant differentiator for early adopters of quantum dot technology and QDEF will give display makers a competitive edge by providing consumers with a colour quality experience they have only seen in movie theatres and professionally printed photos," said Jason Hartlove, president and CEO of Nanosys. "Almost all content available today has to be dialed down to match the limited capabilities of current displays, but with a QDEF enabled display developers and producers can create a photo-quality colour experience for the user."

Designed to be process-ready, display makers can easily integrate QDEF into current manufacturing operations without retooling an existing line, as is the case with other technologies.

QDEF is engineered using Nanosys' patented quantum dot materials dispersed in a polymer matrix and suspended within an optical film. The advanced material creates an improved quality white light with an unprecedented range of hues when excited by an energy-efficient blue LED. This results in better colour and less power consumption than when using white LEDs. Last year, Nanosys commercialized its quantum dot technology with the QuantumRailTM, a process-ready component for smaller format LCDs that improves colour gamut and power efficiency. The company plans to expand its manufacturing capacity as it continues to commercialize its LCD and energy storage technologies.
