Porotech opens new UK and Taiwan facilities
Porotech (a spin off from the Cambridge Centre for Gallium Nitride at the UK’s University of Cambridge that has developed porous GaN material) has celebrated the opening of new facilities in Cambridge, UK on 16 February and in Hsinchu, Taiwan on 20 February with an evening for industry professionals, university professors and local government representatives to discuss the future of the firm and its technology.
Porotech says that its new DynamicPixelTuning (DPT) technology can produce substantial gains in resolution, brightness and efficiency for every type of display while overcoming roadblocks in the commercial viability of micro-LED displays.
At the UK event Warren East, former CEO of Rolls Royce Holdings, delivered an opening speech before joining Porotech’s co-founder & CEO Dr Tongtong Zhu in the official ribbon-cutting ceremony. “Porotech has some fundamental building blocks here to be hugely successful,” commented East. “Its innovation, the application of their hard work, and their ability to remain agile in how they approach the market and their customers means all the more likely that something impressive will spring out of this building.”
Guests were invited to tour the new facilities and observe demonstrations of the technology in action, including display screens, augmented-reality (AR) glasses and transparent displays.
“We are not focused on a particular market, we are looking beyond that,” commented VP & head of Taiwan Dr Kunal Kashyap during the Taiwan event.
