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.

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'?

@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.

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?

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.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
