The optical properties of Quantum Dots make them great candidates to manufacture very high quality screens. They allow for better color rendering, with reduced energy consumption. They are already present in the high-end products of several manufacturers, including Samsung.
However, their large-scale adoption still faces obstacles. The very small size of Quantum Dots makes it difficult to adapt production lines designed to handle about 1000 times larger phosphors. Quantum Dots are also degraded by the oxygen and water molecules present in ambient air. They have to be placed between very expensive protective films. Finally, the best performing Quantum Dots contain too many heavy metals to be RoHS compliant.
The manufacture of Quantum Dots without heavy metals partially solves this last point, without providing a solution to the first two, and at the expense of performance.
Conversely, the encapsulation method developed at Nexdot overcomes all these obstacles, without impact on performance.
Ultimately, the Quantum Dots market is estimated at several tens of billions of dollars annually, first on display and lighting, then on electricity generation and storage solutions.
