Enabling technologies for Cd-free Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode Displays and Signage (QANDELA)


The QANDELA project addresses the development of key materials and deposition process to enable the manufacture of the next generation of display technology. Cadmium free quantum dots offer enhanced brightness, range of colour and low power operation. However, today they are limited in their application due to high specific material performance requirements and poor resolution printing techniques. QANDELA addresses these shortcomings directly by developing superior nanomaterials and novel printing techniques that can manufacture devices by depositing materials for each pixel at a time.
