Nanoco and Osram Continue Work on QD-LEDs

Nanoco has signed another follow-on joint development agreement with Osram, for the use of Nanoco’s cadmium-free quantum dots in lighting. These QDs have the potential to ‘more efficiently produce bright, warm light with the ability to accurately reproduce colours’, says Nanoco.

The companies have been working together since 2011, with the aim of delivering LED lighting with superior performance. Much of the work to-date has been focused on encapsulating the QDs so that they can withstand the operating conditions association with LEDs.
