Quantum dots are tiny particles, sometimes referred to as nanoparticles, of a semiconductor material, such as compounds of cadmium or zinc. Because of their small size, the quantum dots can display unique optical and electrical properties. Nanoco's heavy-metal free quantum dots show bright emission and can be tuned from ultra-violet, through the visible spectrum, into the near infra-red.
Nanoco Group's share price was down 0.31% to 161p at 08:32 on Monday.
