Abstract: Quantum dots have seen tremendous commercial success recently due to the advent of displays utilizing QD color-converting technology to improve the viewer experience and increase efficiency. We are only exposing the tip of the iceberg, however, as there will be numerous advancements in the coming years in display applications for QDs. Polymer films containing QDs have become the dominate form factor in QD-enabled displays, but other technologies such as QD color filter replacements, QDs on LEDs, and electroluminescent QD devices are making tremendous progress. An overview of implementation strategies, technical hurdles, and material options for QDs in next-generation display technologies will be covered.
