Nanoco is the leading commercial supplier of cadmium-free quantum dots – fluorescent semiconductor nanoparticles that absorb or re-emit different colours of light depending on the size of the particle. Quantum dots can be used in a number of different applications including TV displays, lighting, medical applications and solar power. Display is the most advanced of these applications, where quantum dots can provide better picture quality and better efficiency than competing LCD or OLED screens.
