Uniformity is highly valued in displays due to the increased color purity, in sensors for more accuracy and in biotech for easier multiplexing. It is a good measure of the quality of quantum dots and one for which a premium might be charged to a client. One of the primary reasons there are only a few quantum dot commercial products is because it is difficult to produce uniform quantum dots from batch to batch. Without a reliable supply of uniform quantum dots, production cannot be planned, results in the final product could vary when precision is needed, and product data sheets would be inaccurate.
