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 and 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.
