Nanoco Has Signed a Follow-on Joint Development Agreement with Osram

Nanoco, a developer and manufacturer of cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials, has signed a follow-on joint development agreement with Osram for the use of Nanoco quantum dots in general lighting.

Nanoco has been working with Osram under joint development agreements since 2011 with the objective of improving the performance characteristics of LED lighting. During this latest phase of work, which is for a 12-month period, Nanoco intends to further advance product development. To date, considerable progress has been made in optimising the method for incorporating the company’s cadmium-free quantum dots with blue LEDs.

Current methods for producing white light from a blue LED tend to produce light that is weak in red wavelengths, resulting in light that lacks warmth and fails to show true colours. Nanoco quantum dots have the potential to overcome these issues, which are limiting the widespread adoption of LEDs in certain general lighting applications.

Michael Edelman, Nanoco CEO, said: “We’re delighted to sign this latest joint development agreement with Osram and we are very excited about the potential of our technology in general lighting.

"We have worked with Osram since 2011 and have made significant technical progress towards the development of an LED incorporating cadmium-free quantum dots and offering substantially improved colour performance.”
