I would say cleaver use to words with 'zero change in thickness'. The QD's variation in size can act as a color filter but for a homogeneous filtering the size should be nearly same. We can for sure increase the color range but what about the color sharpness? The early adoption of this technology will depend on the marketability.

It seems something is missing here. You have a GaN LED light source, then the QDEF serves as color filters, but how do you decide what color to convert to for each pixel?

@pixies My understanding is that the quantum dot enhancer does not replace the RGB color filters of a conventional LCD...it enables a "richer" white backlight...that when filtered down produces a broader gamut of reds and greens.

The claim of 60% coverage of color is interesting. What colors are left out? Will this create artifacts that make the resulting colors look 'artificial'?

This article is some what confusing as you can see by the comments. It talks about diffusers in one instance then LED phosphor replacement in another. It basically seems to be marketing mumbo jumbo.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
