Porotech wins Business Weekly Award for ‘Materials Technology’

9th September, 2022 – Porotech was delighted to receive a 2022 Business Weekly Award for ‘Materials Technology’ at this years’ awards ceremony, held at Queens’ College in Cambridge, UK.

The award was one of 15 made on the night, and Porotech CEO & co-founder, Dr Tongtong Zhu, was in attendance to accept the award on behalf of the Porotech team. The award recognises Porotech’s outstanding porous gallium nitride platform technology (PoroGaN®), which has enabled game-changing advances in microLED display technology.

Dr Samson Rogers, representing sponsor TTP plc, said: “Porotech’s platform technology was considered by judges to be a gamechanger across a number of applications… Micro and Mini LEDs, Electronics, Sensors, Lasers or Quantum Technology, for example.”

Porotech’s ‘DynamicPixelTuning™’ (DPT™) microLED technology is significantly advancing next generation display technologies into the consumer display space. DPT pixels are single LED diodes/emitters whose emission wavelength can be tuned to emit the entire visible spectrum via modulation of the drive current.

This is a world first in LED technology and is the end of the traditional ‘RGB sub-pixel’ concept as we know it. Via DPT, display manufacturing is significantly simplified, reducing yield loss and cost, and much greater design flexibility in the final product paves the way for ultra-high performance optical modules in applications such as wearables, AR/MR/VR glasses, TVs and smartphones.
