This TV breakthrough just won the Nobel Prize — and these OLED TVs have it now

Quantum dots are incredible technology. These tiny dots reproduce colors based on the size of the dot that light passes through, making them ideal for TV displays. And now, the creators of this technology have been formally recognized for their groundbreaking achievement.

In a press release earlier this month (h/t FlatpanelsHD), the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2023 to Moungi G. Bawendi, Louis E. Brus and Alexei I. Ekimov for their discovery and development of quantum dots. That is a massive achievement, but the best part? You can buy OLED TVs using these, now award-winning, quantum dots — right now.
