Cambridge Nanotherm Appoints Jed Dorsheimer To Board

LED expert to help Nanotherm capitalise on growth of thermal management market 

Cambridge Nanotherm, producer of nanoceramic thermal management technology, has announced the appointment of solid-state lighting expert Jed Dorsheimer to the company's board of directors.

Dorsheimer's role as managing director of equity research, display and lighting at US-based investment banking and institutional research firm Canaccord Genuity makes him the ideal candidate to help develop the company's strategic direction, according to the company. 

Cambridge Nanotherm CEO Erwin Wolf said: "As LED manufacturers switch their focus to general lighting, LEDs are getting brighter and this is causing them to heat up. This isn't good for the LED chip, which degrades rapidly when too hot. Getting the heat out of the chip as effectively as possible is critical and that's where Cambridge Nanotherm's industry-leading thermal management solutions come in.

"Jed's unique combination of technical and commercial knowledge, coupled with industry-leading financial expertise will go a long way to helping us to capitalise on the market. Jed is a perfect fit for Nanotherm as we progress to the next stage in our growth strategy. We're delighted to welcome him to the board, and I look forward to working alongside him."

On his appointment, Dorsheimer said: "It's a great time to be joining the board of directors of Cambridge Nanotherm as the company continues its rapid growth. The company is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the developments in the LED market driven by the general lighting segment."

"The potential for Cambridge Nanotherm is huge, and I'm looking forward to working with Erwin and the rest of the team to help the company achieve its business aims."

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.
