Quantum Dots

Let’s Get (Quantum) Weird: Quantum Dot Technology Takes Off

The science behind an emerging technology known as quantum dots will soon allow for improved color performance and an adherence to standards that have largely been ignored on the manufacturer’s end. The technology is already powering award-winning 55” Sony displays as well as the 8” display of the Amazon Kindle HDX. You may have heard of quantum computing, in which bits not only exist as ones and zeros, but as either at any time. Quantum dots are similar in concept, harnessing a different property of quantum mechanics that allows engineers to change the color of the material by changing its size.
