University of Strathclyde spinout to exploit micro-LED arrays
The University of Strathclyde has spun out a company to exploit micro-LED arrays developed at its Institute of Photonics.
mLED, as it will be known, has kicked off with a £150,000 round led by Braveheart Investment Group, investing via both the Strathclyde Innovation Fund and the Alpha EIS Fund.
Scottish Enterprise’s Scottish Seed Fund also participated.
“This is a very exciting international area of technology but there are only a few companies in the world which have recognised the opportunity and demonstrated capability in this area,” said mLED CEO Dr Jim Bonar.
“We are producing a platform technology that is compact, robust, reliable and versatile.”
The arrays start off as a single large LED structure, which is divided into multiple emitters by a series of shallow trenches.
