What are Quantum Dots?

  • A QD is a nanoparticle. 

  • Made of any semiconductor material such as silicon, cadmium selenide, or cadmium sulfide.

  • They are so small you could fit ten thousand of them into the width of a single strand of human hair.  

  • They are tiny particles that are excited by light or electricity.

  • QD’s emit colours richer than anything currently possible with LED or OLED technology.

  • They are semiconductors; they can be controlled, or programmed.
