Quantum dot maker Nanosys will begin ramping up its production capability after receiving a favorable review of its manufacturing process for quantum dots from the Environmental Protection Agency, the company announced today.
Quantum dots currently are used in tablet and laptop computers around the world. The display technology is expected to play an important role in new Ultra HD television displays.
Prior to receiving the go-ahead, Nanosys made the display technology under an exemption from the agency for production of low volumes of quantum dot materials.
According to Nanosys, it is the first company to receive EPA approval for mass production of quantum dots.
At the 2015 International CES, Hisense, TCL and Changhong demoed Ultra HD sets using the technology. Samsung also unveiled its SUHD TV using Nanosys quantum dots at the show.
