Nanoco Recognised For Innovation In Sustainable Plant Growth

Company wins Silver Edison Award for cadmium-free quantum dots and quantum dot film

Nanoco Group, a manufacturer of cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials, has received a Silver Edison Award in the category of Applied Technology: Horticulture for its cadmium-free CFQD quantum dot technology for LED grow lighting and Deep Red CFQD Quantum Dot Film for sustainable plant growth.

Presented at a recent gala in New York City, the annual Edison Awards - named after Thomas Alva Edison - honours the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services.

The Nanoco Deep Red CFQD Quantum Dot Film is reportedly the first of its kind in sustainable plant growth. Free of heavy metals, the film, when combined with blue and/or near-UV LEDs, maximizes chlorophyll absorption to promote healthy and improved growth while minimising energy consumption.

Using the cadmium-free quantum dot film allows custom individual colour selection for customers based on the particular plant or product being grown, and provides uniformity of light with greatly reduced heat output compared to traditional sources, allowing the lights to be placed in proximity to the plants for maximum yield and plant quality.

 Submissions for the Edison Awards were judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.



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.
