Porotech wins IOP Business Start-Up Award 2022

25  October 2022 – Porotech is delighted to have won a 2022 Business Start-Up Award from the Institute of Physics (IOP), which recognises some of the UK and Ireland’s most transformative new companies founded on physics innovations.

In awarding Porotech this award, the IOP cited Porotech’s development of technologies behind red indium gallium nitride LEDs. Porotech has built on this breakthrough to develop its proprietary DynamicPixelTuning™ (DPT™) solution, the world’s first full-colour microLED display.

The IOP Business Start-Up Awards recognise young companies whose physics innovations are helping the world meet its top challenges. Whether climate change, healthcare, or food production, these awards recognise those young companies using physics to deliver significant social and economic returns.

“We’re thrilled to receive the IOP Business Start-Up award in recognition of our disruptive, engineered GaN-based microLED technology,” says co-founder and CEO, Dr Tongtong Zhu. “By enabling all colours of the visible spectrum to be emitted from a single material, and now a single emitter, we are paving the way for next-generation microLED displays in everything from TVs to AR glasses.”
