Nanosys readies quantum dot LCD displays

Nanosys in a fresh set of tours, one with Robert Scoble, has shown a new display technology that could dramatically improve the color accuracy of LCDs, particularly in mobile. A quantum dot film layer, made of iridium phosphide, eliminates the bias towards blue on usual LED backlighting and expands the color range by as much as 50 percent by shifting more of the emphasis to red and green. The approach has a print-like process and, along with its passive nature, means it won't raise the price of a display or take away from the battery life.
