Quantum dots

Description of Activities

Nanoco Technologies Ltd is a world leading nano-technology company which produces fluorescent semiconductor nano-particles ‘quantum dots’ and quantum dot products. Our quantum dots are non-toxic (free of cadmium) and RoHS compliant. Optical (color) and electronic properties of quantum dots can be changed by altering the size of the nano-crystalline particles. Today we manufacture large 50 gram batches of quantum dots and are currently scaling our production capability through 1 kilogram.

Quantum dots are a true platform technology with uses in a wide range of applications in different industry sectors such as:

•        LED/Display Technologies - Narrowband emitting and energy efficient quantum dots provide the platform for next generation displays and light sources

•        Solar Cells - High energy efficiency, robustness and ability to be printed on different surfaces pave the way for new solar cell applications

•        Life Sciences - Fluorescent labelling with non toxic substances and extremely sharp emission peaks

•        Security and Marking - New ways of protecting brands, secure documents or authenticate products
