Interview with TCL

Ahead of Phosphors & Quantum Dots Industry Forum, we spoke with Dr. Longjia Wu, Materials Development Expert at TCL Corporate Research​, to get a sneak peek of what we can expect from his presentation on 'The Latest Development of IJP-QLED Display towards its Commercialization'. Here's what he had to say...

Q1. Dr Wu, You will share The latest development of IJP-QLED Display towards its Commercialization this year, Can you give us a snapshot of what delegates will hear?

The audiences will hear a brief introduction for QD display, the way to develop the mass production of IJP-QLED, the recent progress of IJP-QLED in TCL, and the remaining challenges facing the commercialization of IJP-QLED.

Q2. What do you think are the key challenges facing the industry in 2023 and 2024?

Quantum dot related technologies emerged decades ago and has undergone tremendous development and achieved numbers of breakthroughs in various field of applications, e.g. display, bio-imaging, sensor, photovoltaics, etc. For the technology to be ready for commercialization, there are several key challenges. For example, scalability, referring to the efficient and cost-effective manufacturing processes that ensure reproducibility and uniformity of QDs across different batches. Stability and reliability will be another challenge ensuring the lifespan of the commercialized QD-related product. Additionally, due to the use of heavy metals, toxicity, and environmental impact of QDs is of concern. Developing QDs with reduced or eliminated toxicity while maintaining their desirable optical/electrical properties is a significant challenge.

Q3. Why do you feel it's important for people to attend the Forum this year?

Attending the forum allows individuals to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements, research breakthroughs, and emerging trends in the field. Forums also bring together a diverse group of professionals and stakeholders from academia, industry, and government organizations. It offers valuable networking opportunities to connect with peers, potential collaborators, investors, and industry leaders. Building relationships within the QD community can lead to collaborations, partnerships. Attending the forum provides insights into market trends, commercialization strategies, and industry forecasts. Understanding the current market landscape and future opportunities can guide researchers and businesses in shaping their strategies, targeting specific applications, and making informed decisions.
