The group, which has signed a worldwide licensing agreement with The Dow Chemical Company in January for exclusive rights to manufacture and market Nanoco cadmium-free quantum dots for the display industry, said revenue for the period increased to £2.5m from £1.3m previously.

Nanoco commented: "Our recent worldwide licensing agreement with The Dow Chemical Company is transformational for Nanoco. It represents a major endorsement of the company's technology, scalability and market potential, and addresses the manufacture of the much larger quantities of our quantum dots that we now expect to be required by the LCD display industry. We expect full commercial production under this agreement to begin in 2014."

"We continue to make good progress across our business and look forward to the future with confidence."
