Shining bright at Nano Tech 2008

Manchester, UK | Posted on February 29th, 2008

The world's biggest nanotechnology event saw Nanoco unveil a solid state lighting device based on its cadmium free quantum dots CFQDTM and also showcase latest developments in the area of CIGS nano particles. CIGS can be used to print solar cells straight onto substrate and therefore provide a cost effective alternative to conventional silicone based solar cells.

This was the fourth year running that Nanoco Technologies, the world leading quantum dot manufacturer from Manchester, UK has attended the nano tech event held in Tokyo. This year had the largest attendance yet with close to 50,000 visitors.

"The show is becoming bigger each year ," said Torsten Schanze, Operations Manager at Nanoco Technologies, "It is a fantastic platform for Nanoco to introduce its latest products as well as meet with its ever growing customer base in Asia, Japan in particular."

Alongside its latest range of cadmium free quantum dots and the prototype QD solid state lighting device, Nanoco also launched its distribution agreement with Sigma Aldrich, the worldís largest supplier for specialty chemicals. From January 2008, research quantities (less than 1g) of Nanoco's NanoDot's are available through Sigma Aldrich

About Nanoco Technologies Ltd
Nanoco is a nano-material science company that holds patents related to industrial-scale production of Quantum Dots. Quantum Dots are Fluorescent semi-conducting nanocrystals that can be used in a range of applications from biological imaging to next generation solar cells and displays. The University of Manchester spinout was founded in 2001 and works in partnership with technology driven corporations to bring quantum dot based applications to the market around the world.

About nano tech 2008 (www.ics-inc.co.jp/nanotech/en/index.html)
nano tech 2008 was organised by the nano tech executive committee. In recent years, nanotechnology driven manufacturing technology has shown huge advancements having an especially large impact on various product applications. Based on optical lithography, new technologies such as ink-jet and nano imprint are creating new waves in ultra-fine processing technology making changes in processing and process implementation entering new markets with high-functional materials. Additionally innovative coating technologies strengthen the durability of precision metal molds making possible the practical application of products which were difficult for mass produce. This matching between technology and manufacturing is what all users in the industries such as Electronics, Automobile, Machinery, Medicine, Chemical, Printing have been seeking which offers a huge potential for business opportunities. This year covered the entire nano marketplace and created a place for business encounters at Tokyo Big Sight by concurrently holding; nano tech 2008: the world's largest nanotechnology exhibition, Nano Bio Expo 2008: Exhibition uniting biotechnology, nanotechnology and business, ASTEC2008&METEC'08: Specialist exhibition for surface technology, treatment and processing. Exhibitors will enjoy a powerful synergy effect with visitors to all concurrently held exhibitions.
