Predicting that a majority of the notebook computers marketed over the next year will feature LED backlighting, technology research firm Nanosys have been developing LED displays powered by nanotechnology. The company layers semiconductor nanomaterials over existing LED configurations to produce more vivid colors at the same energy efficiency.

Treehugger explains:

The trick is in nanotechnology, creating nanomaterials out of semiconductor materials to layer over blue LED lights (the most energy efficient LED color), forming better quality white LED light with a range of hues. And the result is far more vivid colors with the same energy efficiency of current LED technology.

Using this nanotechnology, the company has figured out how to make LEDs of virtually any hue with a color saturation far greater than current LED-backlit LCD displays, and lighting that has warmer hues.
