Where do all the photons go? Optical modeling of a QD-OLED device
QD-OLED has now hit the mainstream market with exceptional reviews. Here we take a look at the underlying mechanisms of color conversion in this device as well as the performance trends through an optical modeling approach. By adjusting various properties of the QD layer, trends in performance such as the color of emitted light, green photon output, blue leakage, and loss mechanisms are investigated. This simple model and associated data analysis provide insight into important design considerations for QD color converted pixels for future display technologies such as QD-OLED and microLEDs.

Session III: MicroLED Applications
Unmatched colour conversion for microLED applications
MicroLED technology is poised to disrupt the display market by bringing a whole new value proposition to consumers products. Flexible, high brightness and excellent lifetime are but a few keywords to describe a new generation of displays spanning virtual reality to wearable applications. QustomDot is focused on bringing unmatched colours through quantum dot (QD) colour conversion to enable commercialisation of this new technology. In this talk QustomDot's CEO, Kim De Nolf, shares why QustomDot aims to facilitate and accelerate the commercialization of microLED technologies beyond traditional displays. We will touch on QustomDot's roadmap to the most stringent microLED applications and why the company is involved from component design and application development at early stages to volume production of a QD ink.
Kim De Nolf | CEO and Co-Founder, QustomDot
Design Considerations of Engineering Quantum Dot Downconverters for MicroLEDs
Both Quantum Dot downconverted blue microLEDs and direct red/green emitting microLEDs continue to improve in performance, changing the arguments for using the two approaches for microLED displays. We discuss the design considerations for choosing 1) QD downconverters on blue microLEDs or 2) RGB microLEDs in different display form factors. Current performances of our Quantum Dot downconverters will be used to place empirical context on the comparison.

Session IV: Novel Applications
Nanoparticles for High-Luminance Light-Emitting Diodes for Efficient Automotive Systems
The automotive industry is undergoing some technological and social revolutions that are shaping the greatest ever upheaval in transportation. These forces are giving rise to three disruptive technological trends: electrification, autonomous vehicles, and digital mobility. In the frame of these revolutions, nanotechnology is expected to play an important role. Specifically, Quantum Dots might challenge the current LED technology as digital lighting devices for automotive systems.

Developing Next-Generation Quantum Dots for Next-Generation Displays
Since their introduction to the display market, Quantum Dots (QDs) have enhanced the consumer experience by delivering brighter and more colorful displays. From a technical perspective, early work to realize these advantages focused on optimization of optical properties including emission color, linewidth, and efficiency. As QDs mature in the commercial space, next-generation display technologies impose increasing demands on the operational stability of these emissive materials. Some examples of these future demands include operation in aerobic/humid environments to enable low-cost options, high-flux excitation for color-conversion on micro-LEDs to create high-resolution green and red sub-pixels, and electroluminescent operation to realize the greatest flexibility in QD display technology. From xQDEF™ laminates and diffuser plates to QD color-conversion for virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), this talk will highlight some of our breakthroughs in QD design and mechanistic understanding of QD degradation pathways to create emissive materials that can unlock the display applications of the future

Session V: QD Sensing
New Paths for High Quality Infrared Image Sensors Based On Quantum dots
This talk will describe recent progress in the SWIR QDPD technology developed at imec. We will show how PbS QDPD is realized for sensing at a wavelength of 1.55um with high signal to noise ratio. We will describe recent performance results and new concepts in improving the technological and manufacturability readiness levels of these devices.

Quantum Dots for short-wave infrared image sensors
Short wave infrared (SWIR) sensing in the range from 900 – 2500 nm is getting very important in such applications as machine vision, automotive and smartphones applications. Quantum Solutions' QDot™ quantum dots can be monolithically integrated on a silicon CMOS read-out integrated circuits (ROIC) making them an ideal solution for economical, high resolution (up to 10 MP) and broadband cameras (300-2500 nm). We will report the current state of the art of the technology, demonstrate commercial cameras based on QDot™ quantum dots in machine vision cameras and present the roadmap of quantum dots SWIR sensors deployment in consumer electronics and automotive applications.
Marat Lutfullin | CEO, Quantum Solutions
Lead and lead-free quantum dot inks simplify solution processing for SWIR photodetectors
Photodetection in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) is preparing to transform from a niche market with high-cost products to mass market adoption of disruptive technologies. Quantum Dot (QD) absorbers have several unique advantages including spectral range, cost effective production, and potential for high resolution.  A lack of lead free QD materials with absorption in the SWIR or quality matching those of the Pb counterparts has kept Pb QDs as the most widely used material to date. Quantum Science Ltd. presents progress in both areas.

Session VI: Phosphors
Next Generation Narrow Band Phosphors for Displays and General Lighting
Narrow band phosphors are an industrial need for both displays and general lighting. This talk will focus on the progress made with new narrow band green phosphors, to produce higher color gamut, for displays. Also, a new narrow band Eu3+ phosphor will be introduced for general lighting along with potential applications for use in display.

Session VII: Research
III-V Quantum Dots, Seeing Light and Dark
III-V quantum dots are printable semiconductors free of hazardous substances. In this talk, recent progress in III-V QDs synthesis at Ghent University and the device implementation of these materials is discussed. First, we show that the formation of InP-based QDs with near-unity photoluminescence quantum yield across the visible spectrum is now possible, and discuss the properties of monochromatic LEDs made using such QDs as on-chip color convertors. Second, we demonstrate the synthesis of In(As,P) QDs with a band-edge absorption up to 1600 nm, and demonstrate the formation of QD photodiodes sensitive up to 1400 nm from these QDs. Both examples highlight how III-V QDs are evolving from a material for lab-scale proof-of-principle to devices ready of the consumer-market
