Quantum Dots

Quantum Dots Give Notebooks a New Glow
A layer of nanomaterial that gives a liquid-crystal display the rich range of colors usually possible only with more expensive technologies will be commercialized later this year by the materials giant 3M and Nanosys ..... Liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) .... organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) ..... their film—a sheet of plastic embedded with nanoscale spheres of indium-phosphide and cadmium quantum dots—makes it possible to match the color gamut of an OLED in an LCD ...... a typical high-end LCD provides only about 70 percent of the color range in a standard called Adobe RGB, while an LCD with this film provides the full gamut (as does an OLED display)
OLED quality displays at the price of LCDs.

Nanotech is seeping into traditional tech.
