TRILUMINOS for mobile gives users access to a wide palette of rich natural colors thanks to Sony’s BRAVIA expertise. It presents rich, deep and authentic colours with subtle tones. It actually increases the range of colors that an LCD display can display by about 50 percent by the use of quantum dots. Quantum dots are best described as light-emitting nanoparticles. Basically, they are very small (2-10 nanometers) particles of a material that emits light. Depending on the size of the particle, which can be controlled precisely, quantum dots emit light in a specific wavelength, which the human eye perceives as a specific color. LCD displays uses white backlight, which is eliminated in the Quantum Dots technology. It starts with a conventional blue LED, which produces pure blue light. But that blue light also stimulates two kinds of quantum dots that emit pure green and pure red. With this approach, the only wavelength that passes through the red filter is the pure red emitted by the red quantum dots.
