BOE Developing Small Panel Quantum Dot Display
March 27, 2017
As part of the Chinese Ministry of Science & Technology R&D program, BOE is developing a small panel (5”) quantum dot display. The device is being produced using an ink-jet printing process and soluble QDs. While there is little information about the project, as it is only one of 863 programs sponsored by the ministry, and the most recent ministry newsletter is from 2012, we expect the device is a preliminary prototype, and far from near commercial production. The development of a electroluminescent device, and its eventual commercialization remains a few years away according industry experts, but we do expect to see similar articles, demos, and IP toward that goal, especially from Chinese display participants, as the playing field in QDs is far more level than in OLED, where South Korean producers dominate the space.
