Shoei Chemical acquires leading QD developer Nanosys

Japan-based Shoei Chemical announced today that it is acquiring US-based QD developer Nanosys. This is not a complete acquisition, but Shoei acquires "substantially all the assets associated with the Nanosys quantum dot business".  Shoei will continue to operate the Nanosys brand and its Silicon Valley-based R&D facility and labs.

Shoei Chemical has been exclusively producing Nanosys' quantum dots materials for the past four years, and the companies already have a close relationship. Nanosys has shipped QD materials to over 1,000 unique products and a total of over 70 million devices, including monitors, TVs and tablets.

MIT researchers precisely assemble quantom rods arrays using folded DNA scaffolds

Researchers from MIT have devised a new method to precisely assemble arrays of quantum rods, using scaffolds made of folded DNA. Using this method, the orientation of the rods can be controlled, which is a key factor in determining the polarization of light emitted by the quantum rods array.

The method starts by attaching the quantum rods to diamond-shaped DNA origami structures, built at an exact size required by the device. The structures are then attached to a surface, where they fit together "like puzzle pieces".

Canon announces new quantom-dot inks tailored for next-gen display applications

Canon announced that it has developed new perovskite quantum-dot inks for use in next-generation displays, with improved durability and potential for application in high-image-quality displays.

Canon develops perovskite quantum-dot inks image

Canon's new perovskite quantum-dot inks are cadmium free, and thanks for Canon's proprietary technologies, the QDs feature protective shell that enables high lifetime and efficiency. Canon's QDs are about 20% more efficient in light converstion compared to standard QDs, and cover 94.4% of the BT.2020 color gamut - higher than regular InP quantum-dot inks (that usually cover around 88% of the same color gamut).
