Submicron-Scale NanoLEDS

“The $20-billion LED market is based on a 20th-century invention that still has several major shortfalls in cost and performance that we intend to overcome,” says NS Nanotech CEO and Co-Founder Seth Coe-Sullivan. "We have already announced breakthroughs in LED performance, with laboratory fabrication of nitride semiconductor nanoLEDs that have the potential to deliver orders-of-magnitude improvements in brightness, efficiency, color saturation, directionality, power consumption, and cost." 


Our R&D team is hard at work on a long-term project to develop the world's first GaN nanoLEDs for both visible RGB displays and invisible UVC light for disinfection. Based on exclusively licensed patent portfolios from McGill University and the University of Michigan, NS Nanotech’s technology introduces new methods for growing sub-micron-scale red, green, blue, and UVC nano-LEDs from the bottom up directly on a single substrate.
