Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF)™
Nanosys is changing the way we see things. Our quantum dot technology creates a visual experience that is truer to reality by enabling LCDs to display over 50% more color than they can today. This means richer, more viscerally alive reds, a deeper palette of greens (the color the human eye sees more intensely than any other color) and vivid blues. Browsing through photos on a tablet is now more like holding a stack of high quality, professional prints. Watching a movie on a big screen in the living room is more akin to attending a private screening at a Hollywood studio.
Quantum Dot Enhancement Film, or QDEF™, is an optical film component for LCD displays.
