The Tablet Testing Ground

I had an epiphany recently. Maybe I’m late to the game here, but I’m noticing that tablets have become a bit of a testing ground for new display technologies. To make my case, I’ll go back a decade to one of the early LCD kindles. Full disclosure, tablets are not a technology that I work […]

Deep Dive into TV Data

I’m a self-described data geek. Give me a data set and I’ll scour it for trends, outliers, winners, and losers. I really enjoy a nice visual graphic that takes a set of complex data and distills it down to something digestible. I hope I’m able to do that here. As this year comes to a […]

Phosphor & Quantum Dot Industry Forum 2022

Shaking hands, chatting, meeting new people, awkwardly trying to remember someone’s name or how you know them. Yet we continue to “attend” the virtual conferences because, presumably, there is still value […]

QDs in Everyday Life

QDs in Everyday Life 5 years ago everything started to change. When making small talk with a new acquaintance who asked “So what do you do?” I used to make a valiant attempt at describing quantum dots and how they could potentially benefit displays and other technologies like solar, biotech, etc. Usually, they would feign […]

Will Nanosys go public?

Will Nanosys go Public? Will Nanosys to go public? Perhaps it’s not news to some of you, since Display Daily editor Bob pointed out last week that Nanosys has been rumored to be exploring an option to go public via a SPAC. I want to be crystal clear that this piece is, in part, based […]
