Christopher Morton Ph.D. Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer NanoPhotonica
Abstract: As high costs/low margins, performance shortcomings, and implementation challenges continue to plague current display architectures, there is rapidly-growing attention being paid to Electroluminescent Quantum dot Light Emitting Diodes (EL-QLEDs) as the “real” new generation for many applications. NanoPhotonica is the world’s leading provider of high performance EL-QLED technology, having focused solely on developing its innovative EL-QLED materials and pixel devices since its inception. I’ll outline both the technical and market penetration progress the company has earned, as well as the wide range of opportunities in its future.
