Now, LCD screens to get 'richly colored' thanks to quantum dots
New high-tech specks called quantum dots have been designed to make LCD screens more richly colored.
Eric Nelson, who helped create the plastic films that hold the quantum dots in a screen, said that the new technology called 3M quantum dot enhancement film (QDEF) is the most efficient way to get to a high-color display.
While speaking at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), he mentioned that the quantum dot displays need less energy compared to other high-color options.
He added that they are superconducting crystals so small that 10,000 could fit across the width of a human hair.
