Nanoco’s CFQD® quantum dots offer enhanced colour, energy efficiency, and seamless integration into existing LCD production processes

LCD displays have become the interface of choice between people and their devices, from smartphones to large screen televisions. Continuous improvement in the quality of these displays is a key demand for companies that manufacture and supply such products.

Nanoco’s quantum dot technology is particularly attractive not only for its ability to enhance the colours of LCD screens – allowing them to rival OLED products – but also enabling manufacturers to use their existing infrastructure to do so.

Nanoco’s CFQD® quantum dots are cadmium-free, and free of other toxic heavy-metals, so they are ideally suited for use in all consumer electronic devices.


Nanoco’s CFQD® quantum dots enable tuneable, high-efficiency LED lighting

As lighting technology has evolved, LED lighting – bright, high-efficiency and long-lasting – is well placed to become the light source of the future.

However, most LED lighting technology offers lower colour performance relative to incandescent light and fails to show the true colour of illuminated objects.

Nanoco’s CFQD® quantum dots offer a simple and effective solution that can both tune the colour and improve the quality of light. Since the materials are free from toxic cadmium and heavy-metals, they can readily be used in lighting and device applications.


Nanoco’s nanomaterials have the potential to produce highly efficient, low cost and lightweight solar cells

Using Nanoco’s expertise in the synthesis of nanoparticles, a variety of novel materials have been developed that can absorb a wide spectrum of the sun’s energy.

These nanomaterials are being developed and used as printable inks, ideal for roll-to-roll manufacturing and low cost production of solar cells.

In the future, this technology will enable highly efficient, low cost and lightweight solar cells that could transform the economics of solar power.
Moreover, as with all other materials developed by Nanoco, these solar inks are free from toxic cadmium and heavy-metals.


Nanoco’s nanomaterials offer improved in-vivo and in-vitro biological imaging of cells for advanced diagnostic applications

Nanoco’s technology is free from toxic cadmium and heavy-metal, so it can be used for in-vivo diagnostics opening up new areas of clinical and surgical opportunities.
