SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Nanosys, Inc. introduces Hyperion Quantum Dots, a new Quantum Dot material system that represents a significant development breakthrough in unlocking the market for displays meeting the BT.2020 UltraHD color standard. Hyperion Quantum Dots match the color performance of the industry's best cadmium-based materials without requiring an exemption to the European Union's Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. Hyperion Quantum Dots will be evaluated by select Nanosys QDEF manufacturing partners in the third quarter of 2016 with mass production of QDEF products using Hyperion Quantum Dots expected in early 2017.
Hyperion Quantum Dots integrate seamlessly into Nanosys' current QDEF™ Quantum Dot enhancement film manufacturing process. Nanosys has demonstrated over 90% BT.2020 color gamut using Hyperion Quantum Dots in a sheet of QDEF with cadmium levels below the 100ppm limit established by the RoHS Directive, thereby eliminating the need for an exemption. This is accomplished by combining an entirely cadmium free red Quantum Dot with a green Quantum Dot engineered to have an exceptionally narrow emission spectrum and ultra-low cadmium content.
