Brilliant colors from environmentally friendly crystals
Quantum dots have made it possible to substantially increase color quality in LCD displays. However, these cadmium-based nanocrystals have proven to be harmful to the environment. Researchers are working together with an industry partner to develop a promising alternative: quantum dots based on indium phosphide.
