VR Goggles

The continuous development of consumer electronics is bringing newer and more advanced devices to the market, designed to make everyday life easier and provide access to information and entertainment. VR is undoubtedly one of the fastest growing technologies, and goggles that enable the transition to virtual reality have successfully entered the ranks of popular products.

VR AR technology overview

The two abbreviations – VR/AR occur in many places and are often considered the same thing. However, there is a fundamental difference between them.

VR technology stands for virtual reality, which means immersion in a virtual world. VR goggles are not transparent, and many manufacturers add cameras to control the environment without taking them off your head. AR technology, on the other hand, stands for augmented reality and extends the capabilities of the real world. In AR technology, we most often refer to the devices as glasses rather than googles, because the principle is similar to standard transparent glasses and superimposes digital information on the real world, enhancing the perception of the surrounding environment as an additional layer of digital content.

Quantum dot technology

In VR products, the display is very small and close to the eye. In order to achieve good image quality, it is required to provide a small pixel size due to the high resolution, high brightness and wide color gamut, and quantum dots are the key to providing them!

But what exactly are quantum dots and how to implement them in a VR display?

Quantum dots (QDs) are ultra-small semiconductor particles, only a few nanometers in size, a key parameter that gives them unique optical and electronic properties due to the effect of quantum mechanics. When excited with light or electricity, the particles emit a specific spectrum of light, depending on the type it is red or green light, which, when combined with the original blue, creates a full color spectrum.

In quantum dot displays (QLEDs), it is possible to deliver pure colors and higher brightness through increased efficiency than standard LEDs and create vibrant and realistic images. The color conversion module (CCM), of which quantum dots are a key ingredient, is responsible for this. The principle of operation is quite simple – blue light from the backlight source passes through the QD layer and excites them to emit lower energy and brighter red and green colors.

To manufacture this type of display, innovative technologies are required. XTPL has developed UPD Technology, a solution for microdispensing conductive and non-conductive materials. It requires no electric field, there is no jetting and oversprays, as it uses only pressure up to 10 bar, which is a reliable solution for many applications. Use the XTPL Delta Printing System, which is a stand-alone station with all the necessary components on board, ready for R&D, prototyping and small batch production. For industrial applications, there is the XTPL UPD System, a customizable solution for integration into production lines and other machines.

XTPL’s portfolio includes silver-, gold- and copper-based materials called nanopastes because of their high viscosity parameter. But UPD Technology also works seamlessly with third-party materials, such as quantum dot inks, resins, dielectrics and many other custom products.


Cutting-edge VR technology is an emerging market, and growing user expectations require continuous improvement in its performance. Ultra-high resolution and cost-effective production are synonymous with UPD additive technology, a reliable solution for dispensing quantum dots.
