Samsung created monitor with quantum dots

Samsung monitorThe Korean IT giant Samsung Electronics set up world’s first full color display with quantum dots. Such screens are brighter, have better energy efficiency and also their production is cheaper. Quantum point represents semiconductor nano-crystals, which is so small that it is manifest quantum effects. In particular, crystal lights under the influence of electric current. The color of the radiation depends on the size of the crystal and the material of which it is made. The 4-inch prototype screen with quantum dots shown by Samsung, is managed by active-matrix, ie each pixel on and off of the thin film transistor. Besides screen glass substrate, Samsung has developed and a prototype of a plastic substrate, to demonstrate the use of new technology in flexible displays. The display with quantum dots consume no more than 20% of the energy required for liquid crystal displays (LCD). It is also brighter and more durable than OLED (organic LEDs). The biggest advantage of new technology, however, is twice as expensive to manufacture LCD and OLED.
According to experts, will require at least 3 years before the new displays to enter the market. Is still much to research and solve complex engineering problems.
