Samsung, Nanosys, Hisense, Intel, and More to Headline at the 2020 Phosphors & Quantum Dots Industry Forum

Smithers is pleased to announce that the annual Phosphors & Quantum Dots Industry Forum will be held March 11-13, 2020 at the Hilton Portland Downtown, Portland, Oregon. Previously known to the photonics industry as the Phosphors Global Summit and Quantum Dots Industry Forum, this year’s conference agenda will continue to explore the latest growth opportunities in materials science, manufacturing trends, emerging research, and end-use applications for both quantum dots and phosphor technologies.

Confirmed Presentations Include:

  • A Technical Roadmap and Progress of QLED TV, But Remaining Hurdles for Commercializing, presented by Samsung Electronics
  • Current Work and Trends on Photoluminescence Quantum Dots Used in Novel Display Technologies, presented by Hisense Electronics Co., Ltd
  • Realizing the Promise of Micro LED Displays, presented by Intel Corporation

“Each year I’ve attended, there are typically a few ‘hot topics’ in the field, and this conference covers all these topics along with a balanced perspective of the industry and academic progress over the past year,” said Dr. Charlie Hotz, VP of R&D, at Nanosys Inc., a returning attendee and new addition to the 2020 Advisory Board. “If your technical or business interest is in QDs, phosphors, or your business may be impacted by emerging emissive materials, this is the event that provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date status of these developments.”

In addition to the two-day conference taking place March 12-13, a pre-conference workshop focusing on Nanoparticle Perovskite Materials, will take place on the afternoon of March 11, 2020, beginning at 12:00 PM Pacific Time.
