Quantum Dots: Material Innovation Trends

Quantum dots are a successful example of nanotechnology. We at IDTechEx Research expect that QDs will be used in over 7 Msqm of displays in 2019 (for exact forecasts consult our report). The current dominant method of quantum dot integration in displays is the film-type. This is a non-ideal solution designed as a workaround to current material shortcomings. However, as the QD material system expands, new methods of integration as well as new applications beyond displays will become enabled.
