Session II: A Comparative Look
< Session Description >
This session will explore the similarities and differences between various lightings and display technologies and how they stack up against each other in various applications. Presentations will explore pros and cons from cost to performance.
IJP-QLED Display Development towards its Commercialization
Quantum dots light emitting diodes(QLEDs), have been widely recognized as the most promising next-generation display technology candidate. At current stage, the lifetime issue of QLEDs remains the critical challenges towards commercialization, especially for blue devices. For mass-production of QLEDs, other issues need to be addressed including device structure compatible for production and improvement in the Ink-Jet-Printed(IJP) device performances.
              To solve these issues, TCL QLED team has made significant progress in the development of high-performance QLED devices.The lifetime performance of QLED devices were able to be competitive with that of OLEDs. We have successfully adopted the top emission device structure, which is compatible for panel mass-production with better current efficiency. Furthermore, the performance gap between spin-coated and IJP devices has been largely resolved, owing to the effort on the optimization of inks, film quality and IJP fabrication flow. Such progress is expected to shed light on the dawn of QLED commercialization.

Where do all the photons go? Optical modeling of a QD-OLED device
QD-OLED has now hit the mainstream market with exceptional reviews. Here we take a look at the underlying mechanisms of color conversion in this device as well as the performance trends through an optical modeling approach. By adjusting various properties of the QD layer, trends in performance such as the color of emitted light, green photon output, blue leakage, and loss mechanisms are investigated. This simple model and associated data analysis provide insight into important design considerations for QD color converted pixels for future display technologies such as QD-OLED and microLEDs.

How Perovskite Quantum Dots will Help the LCD Industry to Survive
A color conversion film with green and red color conversion materials is needed for mini-LED based LCD displays because the traditional approach of using phosphors on-chip does not
work for such displays due to technical limitations. Either narrow band phosphors (like BSialon or KSF) or quantum dots (like CdSe or InP) are commercially used in color conversion films and the selection of these materials is mainly driven by display performance including picture quality but also battery-life. We present and discuss the pros and cons of the different material combinations in relation to the specific display types of TV, monitors, notebooks and tablets and will show where perovskite quantum dots will make a difference and will help the LCD industry to compete against OLED industry. Furthermore we give an update on the
development and commercialization status for our color conversion films which are based on different combinations of green perovskites and red emitter materials.

Developing Next-Generation Quantum Dots for Next-Generation Displays
Since their introduction to the display market, Quantum Dots (QDs) have enhanced the consumer experience by delivering brighter and more colorful displays. From a technical perspective, early work to realize these advantages focused on optimization of optical properties including emission color, linewidth, and efficiency. As QDs mature in the commercial space, next-generation display technologies impose increasing demands on the operational stability of these emissive materials. Some examples of these future demands include operation in aerobic/humid environments to enable low-cost options, high-flux excitation for color-conversion on micro-LEDs to create high-resolution green and red sub-pixels, and electroluminescent operation to realize the greatest flexibility in QD display technology. From xQDEF™ laminates and diffuser plates to QD color-conversion for virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), this talk will highlight some of our breakthroughs in QD design and mechanistic understanding of QD degradation pathways to create emissive materials that can unlock the display applications of the future

Session V: QD
How I-III-VI2 Quantum Dots are Enabling New Markets from Anticounterfeit Security to Solar Energy
In recent years, quantum dots (QDs) have seen significant market success as narrowband emitters for displays. However, QDs have traditionally suffered from reliability issues, high manufacturing costs, and toxicity concerns that prevented them from being incorporated into products beyond consumer electronics. At UbiQD, an advanced materials company spun out of Los Alamos National Laboratory, we’ve developed a new class of QDs based on the I-III-VI2 semiconductors that largely resolves these issues. These dots have a copper-state-based photoluminescence mechanism that has some characteristics of phosphors, while still maintaining size-dependent/tunable emission typical of QDs. These novel materials have the capability of being deployed at a massive scale to become truly ubiquitous, by enabling new products such as anti-counterfeit security inks and solar-powered smart windows. In the not-to-distant future, energy-efficient QD-glass windows will be available from the glazing industry, offering a meaningful tool for combating climate change. Similarly, QDs are showing promise as a critical solution in the prevention of counterfeit fraud. A background on I-III-VI2 QDs will be given, and UbiQD’s recent progress on the development of solar windows and security inks will be highlighted.

Lead and lead-free quantum dot inks simplify solution processing for SWIR photodetectors
Photodetection in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) is preparing to transform from a niche market with high-cost products to mass market adoption of disruptive technologies. Quantum Dot (QD) absorbers have several unique advantages including spectral range, cost effective production, and potential for high resolution.  A lack of lead free QD materials with absorption in the SWIR or quality matching those of the Pb counterparts has kept Pb QDs as the most widely used material to date. Quantum Science Ltd. presents progress in both areas.

Session VI: Phosphors
PFS/KSF Technology in Display and General Illumination Applications
PFS/KSF Technology provides superior performance for efficient red luminescence required in both display applications seeking wider color gamut performance as well as general illumination applications desiring high efficiency with truer color rendering of illuminated areas and objects.  In display devices, LEDs with PFS/KSF Phosphors illuminate with a truer saturated red yielding vivid red colors while reducing yellowing of the green pixel emission.  In general illumination, PFS/KSF Phosphors enables lighting products with 90CRI and R9>50 at a comparable lumen efficiency as 80CRI products.  Moreover, PFS/KSF Technology is well suited to evolving color standards (e.g. TM-30).  Present use of this technology along with future applications will be discussed.  Advancement for green luminescent materials will be shared that build upon the improved color gamut that PFS/KSF technology has enabled for displays

Stable Nanophosphors for LED Applications
Current developments on mini- and micro-LEDs have intensified the search for stable nano-scale conversion materials. Nanophosphors, in particular nano-size YAG:Ce, are of great interest due to their inherent large stability on the micron scale. In addition, high quality ultrasmall YAG:Ce is a crucial component of our inter-particle energy transfer (IFRET) technology that allows sensitization of Eu3+ in the blue spectral range. Recently, we have made large improvements on both the optical properties and morphologies of our nanoYAG as well as IFRET materials. In this talk, we will address the current properties and limitations of our materials, as well as their applications for white LEDs, miniature LEDs and anti-counterfeiting.

Session VII: Research
III-V Quantum Dots, Seeing Light and Dark
III-V quantum dots are printable semiconductors free of hazardous substances. In this talk, recent progress in III-V QDs synthesis at Ghent University and the device implementation of these materials is discussed. First, we show that the formation of InP-based QDs with near-unity photoluminescence quantum yield across the visible spectrum is now possible, and discuss the properties of monochromatic LEDs made using such QDs as on-chip color convertors. Second, we demonstrate the synthesis of In(As,P) QDs with a band-edge absorption up to 1600 nm, and demonstrate the formation of QD photodiodes sensitive up to 1400 nm from these QDs. Both examples highlight how III-V QDs are evolving from a material for lab-scale proof-of-principle to devices ready of the consumer-market

Thiols as an Enabling Material for Quantum Dot Technology
Thiols have widely been used as a component of QD technology since the very beginning, mainly as ligands for QD dispersion. However, their utility reaches far beyond this. Multifunction polythiol monomers can be used as a component of UV-curable QD-containing formulations to enable improved performance over non-thiol containing formulations. Importantly, thiols are simple to integrate into any type of UV curable formulations, whether it is for ink jet printing, photoresists, or other deposition methods. This presentation will review the chemistry of thiols as an active monomer/crosslinker in polymer formulations, as well as provide specific examples of the benefits of thiols to QD-containing formulations.
