The second wavelength band is different than the first wavelength band. The quantum dot precursor materials include metal atoms or metal ions corresponding to metal components present in the quantum dots. The chelating agent is configured to chelate the quantum dot precursor materials. The photoinitiator initiates polymerization of the one or more monomers in response to absorption of radiation in the second wavelength band.
