Nanoco Group who develops and
manufactures cadmium-free quantum dots (CFQD quantum dots) and other nanomaterials, announced it has signed a
worldwide material supply and licensing agreement with Merck, a science and
technology company. The license allows Merck to immediately start marketing
Nanoco’s CFQD quantum dots and to ultimately establish its own production
facility to meet growing market demand for this innovative, heavy metal-free
material. Quantum materials offer a substantial additional benefit when they
are used as color converters in the light source of liquid crystal displays. In
conventional displays, the colors blue, green, and red are filtered out of the
original white light of the LED light source. A great deal of light is lost in
this process. Because a blue LED in combination with red and green quantum
materials only generates the blue, green and red light that is perfectly
transmitted through the filters, there is much less absorption. This increases
the display’s brightness, thus reducing electricity consumption and leading to
much purer and potentially stronger colors. View an interview with Nanoco’s CEO
