PEROLED Korea

PEROLED Korea logoKorea-based PEROLED Co. Ltd developed perovskite-based quantum dots for displays, solar panels and other applications. The company's materials can be used for photoluminescence and electroluminescence.

PEROLED offers both customized and off-the-shelf perovskote QD materials.

Excyton

Excyton logoExcyton (previously PeroLED) was established in 2019, with operations in both the UK and Saudi Arabia (at KAUST). The company develops novel light emitting materials and devices for next-generation displays. Excyton is currently focused on novel OLED materials, but it is also developing electroluminescent perovskite materials for application in displays (PeroLED).

The company received a $2 million seed investment in 2020 from the KAUST Investment Fund.

Valais Perovskite Solar

Valais Perovskite Solar logo imageValais Perovskite Solar (VPS) is a Switzerland-based company with a focus on molecular engineering of functional materials for PV and light-emitting applications.

VPS mainly focuses on:

  • Molecular Engineering of Sensitizers for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells and Organic Light-Emitting Diodes
  • Perovskite solar cells
  • Design and development of charge transporting materials
  • Photophysics and Photochemistry of Molecular Assemblies

The goal of VPS is, according to its website: "to engineer at the molecular level novel panchromatic sensitizers and functionalized hole-transporting materials to achieve power conversion efficiency (PCE) surpassing 23%. Because many chemical combinations result in a perovskite crystal structure, and each of them has different optical properties, choosing the chemistry of a cell also means choosing what part of the spectrum it absorbs, this could push efficiency levels in the future up to around 36%. It may be possible to manufacture also a panel that is 30% efficient using standard solar cells in combination with perovskites".

VIVAN Life Sciences

VIVAN Life Sciences logoVIVAN Life Sciences is an India-based high-end chemical producer that caters for various industrial verticals such as electronics, display materials, solar panel materials and pharmaceuticals.

The company offers custom synthesis and contract research projects, and is producing several materials for the perovskite industry, including hole transport (HT) materials for perovskite solar cellsand perovskite precursors such as organic Onium salts and bromide salts.

Greatcell Solar Materials

GSM logo imageGreatcell Solar Materials was spun off the now-defunct GreatCell Solar.

It concentrates on the commercialization and manufacture of materials for the PSC market. All materials previously offered by Greatcell Solar Australia are still offered by GSM; Since spinning off, GSM has also increased its materials diversity.

Microchem

Microchem logo imageMicrochem is a Korea-based global provider of ultra high-purity materials and components, mainly for the lighting industry. Microchem supplies mixed metal halides of a variety of components and compositions in the form of precisely-sized spheres of narrow mass variation and is now also covering ultra-dry metal halides of most of elements.

Microchem manufactures high-purity metal halides including: PbI2, SnI2, BiI3, RbI3 and CsI which are widely used in perovskite solar cell development. Microchem is also specialized in pelletizing those metal halides so that each pellet (1.0mg-10.0mg) can contain more than two metal halides according to molar ratio provided by a customer.

Microchem can aid the perovskite research community by providing easy-to-use materials. For example, a pellet (1.0mg) contains both CsI and PbI2 according to the molar ratio so that researchers or panel makers do not have to purchase CsI and PbI2 separately and add those metal halides into a solvent.

Quantum Materials Corp

quantum Materials Corp logo imageQuantum Materials Corp. manufactures Tetrapod Quantum Dots for use in medical, display, solar energy and lighting applications through an automated production process.

QMC states that its volume manufacturing methods assure economies of scale, reliability and uniformity to drive innovative discovery to commercial success by addressing three critical needs: lowering costs while improving efficiency and quality.

Zhijing Nanotech

Zhijing Nanotech logoZhijing Nanotech (Finest Nano) was founded in 2016 in China. The business office is located in Beijing and the R&D base is located in Zhangjiagang.

The company is dedicated to the development of low cost, high performance, environmentally benign perovskite quantum dots for their applications in lighting and display. Adapting its patented technology, the company has developed the world’s first PQD/polymer based optical film (PQDF). LCD displays equipped with PQDF reportedly exhibit a color gamut of 110% NTSC and brightness of 600 nits. Zhijing Nanotech is also applying its advanced perovskite technology to a wider range of applications, such as seperator membrane for Li ion battery, UV converter for Si solar cell, etc.

Zhijing Nanotech is now working closely with several world-leading industrial partners to integrate its PQDF product into various commercial display products. The company can also produce patented PQD coating materials in large quantity. PQDF samples made from PQD coating material are being tested by end customers. Zhijing Nanotech is able to offer PQDF samples with size range from A4 to 65 inch (16:9).

Quantum Solutions

Quantum Solutions is a nanotech startup company based in the UK and originally founded at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia.

Quantum Solutions develops quantum dot materials and technology for image sensors applications. It provides QDot-branded quantum dots and helps to integrate them with silicon sensor technologies to detect the light beyond the visible spectrum. These wide range image sensors enable to capture images that would be invisible to the naked eye: from lower energy short wave infrared (SWIR) and middle wave infrared (MWIR) ranges to higher energy UV and X-ray lights.
