Nanoco, a UK-based cadmium-free quantum-dot developer, announced that it acquired a group of QD patents from Kodak. These patents are connected to the use of quantum dots in Q-LED displays.

Q-LED displays are emissive displays, similar to OLEDs, but ones that use QDs as the emitting materials. These displays make use of the dots electroluminescent, as opposed to current QD-LCD displays that use the dots photoluminescent to enhance the color gamut and efficiency of LED-based LCDs.
