Nanoco Reports Steady Progress At AGM

 Dow partnership on target for mass production of quantum dots in 2015

Nanoco Group plc, a UK firm that develops and manufactures cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials, held its Annual General Meeting today.

"We continue to be pleased by the progress being made in our partnership with The Dow Chemical Company for the manufacture and marketing of Nanoco quantum dots for the display market, ", said Anthony Clinch, Nanoco's chairman.

"We are particularly excited about 2015 when, as previously announced, we expect Dow to begin mass production of our quantum dots in Cheonan, South Korea, by mid-year, " he added.

The company is currently producing quantum dots from its own production facility in Runcorn to satisfy demand from customers and potential customers ahead of Dow's mass production facility in Choenan coming on line.

Clinch added: "We look forward with confidence to the year ahead, during which time we expect to deliver further substantial progress in the commercialisation of our technology across our key target markets including display, LED general lighting, solar and bio-imaging."

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
