Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diodes?
It's hard to believe that anyhting can surpass today's LED technology. LED bulbs and dedicated fixtures produce bright, high quality light. In average commercial use applications they should last about a decade.
So, why not just keep using today's technology forever if it's so good? Why change? What could possibly be better?
Well, today's LEDs are known as OLEDs, or Organic Light Emitting Diodes. The principle is that electricity passes through a metallic resistor which glows and produces light.
In the early 2020s, LEDs will be known as QLEDs or Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diodes. The difference is that they will be using laboratory grown, ultra thin cadmium selenide crystals to produce light. Yes, grown in a laboratory, not manufactured in a factory!
QLEDs will be more power efficient than OLEDs, so will use even less hydro to produce the same amount of light while maintaining today's life spans. The colour rendering quality of QLED bulbs will be impressively excellent, so a boon for increased sales in retail environments.
QLEDs will also enable designers and engineers to develop new display and lighting forms. In fact, Samsung has just introduced its first QLED televisions. Ultra thin screens with superior colour and incredibly crisp images.
