University Of Sheffield Spins-out Micro-LED Company

News

EpiPix will be commercialising technology for AR, VR, 3D sensing and Li-Fi communications

The University of Sheffield in the UK has spun-out a company to develop next generation micro-LED technology. Named EpiPix Ltd, the new company is focusing on micro-LED technology for photonics applications such as micro-displays for portable smart devices, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 3D sensing and visible light communications (Li-Fi).

Underpinned by research from Tao Wang and his team at the University of Sheffield's Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering - renowned around the world for their research and expertise in semiconductor materials and devices - the company is collaborating with global corporations on next generation micro-LED product developments.

This pre-production technology has already been demonstrated for multi-colour micro-LED arrays on single wafers with high light efficiency and uniformity. EpiPix is developing robust micro-LED epiwafers and product solutions for red, green and blue wavelengths with micro-LED pixel size ranging from 30 microns down to 10 microns and with less than five microns diameter prototypes demonstrated successfully.

EpiPix operates as a commercially-driven technology centre with worldwide exclusive commercial rights to all the micro-LED IP that has been licensed by the company from the University.

Dennis Camilleri, CEO and director of EpiPix, said: “This is an exciting opportunity, and great timing in the micro-LED markets, for turning excellent science into profitable micro-LED products. We are already engaged with industry customers to ensure that EpiPix aligns with their short-term product requirements and future technology roadmaps.”

Camilleri will be in San Francisco at the Photonics West Conference and Exhibition between 3-6 February 2020.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
