Nanoco Wins Award for quantum dots

Cadmium-free technology recognised in 'Oscar of Photonics'

Quantum dot company Nanoco Group has been selected as the winner of the Prism Awards 2016 in the Materials and Coatings category for its cadmium-free CFQD quantum dots. The award was presented at a ceremony held in San Francisco during the SPIE Photonics West Conference, February 13-18.

The Prism Awards, also referred to as the "˜Oscar of Photonics' is an international competition, presented by SPIE & Photonics Media, celebrating the most innovative photonics solutions in the industry, poised to tackle the biggest challenges of our time.  

Comprising nine categories, the Prism Awards applications are judged by a panel of leading industry experts, venture capitalists, luminaries and visionaries, who this year made their selection out of a pool of more than 130 companies.

"It's gratifying to see Nanoco's cadmium-free CFQD quantum dot technology recognised alongside innovations from other leading companies around the world," said Michael Edelman,  CEO of Nanoco.

"This prestigious award validates Nanoco's breakthrough in non-toxic, cadmium free quantum dots as an enabling technology transforming a broad range of applications including display, lighting, biomedicine and solar.

As we continue to push the envelope both through innovative technologies and a visionary business strategy, Nanoco is extremely enthusiastic about the new applications we'll be bringing to market in the months and years ahead."
