Nanoco "Quantum Dots" Take a Leap Into Lighting
Aug 15, 2011
A new project is in the making between Nanoco Group PLC and its subsidiary partner R&D and blue-chip industrial organisations. It will incorporate semiconductor nanoparticles -- "quantum dots" -- from Nanoco in with the LED lights made by the major LED manufacturer.
Nanoco's technology is currently unique in that it produces large quantities of these quantum dots on a "commercial scale...protected by worldwide patents." The company also has a monopoly in this technology because it does not use a regulated heavy metal, unlike others, and this has already been taken advantage of as the chance to enable chemical linkage for biological and other uses.
Despite all the areas this technology may be useful, the current focus is on "next-generation products," in applications like display technology, lighting, solar cells and biological imaging. This is particularly noticeable now that Nanoco has linked with a major LED manufacturer to develop a new product using the quantum dots.
