Nanosys | Date: 2016-09-14

Embodiments of a local optic using quantum dots are described. A local optic includes an optical source on a substrate, a housing, and a film that includes quantum dots. The housing is designed to fit around the optical source and has a cross-sectional area along a plane parallel to a surface of the substrate. The film is designed to sit on top of the housing and has a substantially similar cross-sectional area to the cross-sectional area of the housing.


Highly luminescent nanostructures, particularly highly luminescent quantum dots, are provided. The nanostructures have high photoluminescence quantum yields and in certain embodiments emit light at particular wavelengths and have a narrow size distribution. The nanostructures can comprise ligands, including C5-C8 carboxylic acid ligands employed during shell formation and/or dicarboxylic or polycarboxylic acid ligands provided after synthesis. Processes for producing such highly luminescent nanostructures are also provided, including methods for enriching nanostructure cores with indium and techniques for shell synthesis.

Embodiments of a device and a method of tuning white point values of light distributed by a backlight unit of a display device are described. The device includes a backlight unit, an image generating unit, and a patterned layer. The backlight unit includes a light source unit and an optical processing unit having a quantum dot film coupled to the light source unit. The image generating unit includes a display screen. The backlight unit is configured to distribute light to the display screen and the patterned layer is configured to tune white point values of the distributed light to a desired white point value in order to achieve substantially uniform white point values across the display screen.

The present invention relates to silicone polymer ligands for binding to quantum dots. The silicone polymer ligands contain a multiplicity of amine, carboxy, and/or phosphine binding groups suitable for attachment to quantum dots. The present invention also describes a process for the preparation of quantum dot binding ligands.


The present invention provides methods for hermetically sealing luminescent nanocrystals, as well as compositions and containers comprising hermetically scaled luminescent nanocrystals. By hermetically sealing the luminescent nanocrystals, enhanced lifetime and luminescence can be achieved.
