Nanoco Group PLC (LON:NANO) said its NanocoTechnologies unit and Plessey Semiconductors have formed a partnership to shrink the pixel size of monolithic microLED displays using Nanoco's cadmium-free quantum dot (CFQD) semiconductor nanoparticle technology.
The smallcap group said that using its existing monolithic process, Plessey will integrate the Nanoco CFQD quantum dots into selected regions of blue LED wafers to add red and green light.

The firm said this shrinks the current smallest practical pixel size by 87% and will enable the production of smaller, higher-resolution, microLED displays in applications such as AR/VR devices, watches, and mobile devices while enhancing both colour rendition and energy efficiency.
Dr Brian Gally, Nanoco's Head of Product commented: "We are thrilled to be working in close collaboration with Plessey, who leads the global field in the development and production of microLED arrays.
“The combination of Plessey's blue microLEDs with Nanoco's red and green cadmium-free quantum dots gives display customers the performance they require to rapidly commercialise products."
