Quantum dots: evolving downconverter technology beyond phosphors?

Quantum dots: evolving downconverter technology beyond phosphors?

Oct 17, 2018
Quantum dots (QDs) are often billed as the ultimate, or at least as the next generation of, phosphors. The main driver often is the QDs' ability to act as ultra-narrowband downconverters, resulting in extremely wide color gamut displays and efficient and high CRI solid state LED lights.

Graphene for vehicle parts

Graphene for vehicle parts

Oct 11, 2018 United States
Graphene is a material used in coating, cell phones and even some sporting goods - and soon, will be used under the hood in Ford vehicles, a first in automotive. Ford, along with Eagle Industries and XG Sciences, has found a way to use a very small amount of graphene while achieving major property improvements - more lightweight, better heat conductivity and noise reduction.
