CleanEquity Monaco is an annual invitation-only event hosted by Innovator Capital, the London based specialist cleantech investment bank.

Other partners and sponsors include Prince Albert II of Monaco's Foundation, Covington & Burling, Qualcomm, MDB Capital, PR Newswire, Kwittken & Company, the Monte-Carlo SBM and Monaco Chamber of Economic Development.

CrayoNano has been identified by an expert panel as one of the world's most innovative cleantech companies and has been selected to present to senior financial and strategic cleantech investors, policy makers, legislators, end users and media.

CrayoNano grows semiconductors on graphene
CrayoNano introduces nanowires on graphene, a patented hybrid material with competitive properties. Semiconductors grown on graphene are expected to become the basis for new types of device systems, and ultimately change the semiconductor industry making it possible to upgrade consumer electronics to a level where design has no limits.

The new patented hybrid material offers excellent optoelectronic properties, Professor Helge Weman says. He is the CTO and co-founder of CrayoNano AS. –We have managed to combine low cost, transparency and flexibility in our new electrode.

This invention is thus thought to be an enabler for a future platform of devices for electronics and optoelectronics. One possible device with a very large market potential is nanowire solar cells. Such solar cells have the potential to be efficient, cheap and flexible at the same time. Into the future one can also imagine self-powered nano-machines and advanced 3D integrated circuits built on graphene and semiconductor nanowires, enabling smaller and more efficient electronics.

– We do not see this as a new product, Weman states, –This is a template for a new production method for semiconductor devices. We expect solar cells and light emitting diodes to be first in line when future applications are planned.
