Start-up company Quanlight Inc of San Diego, USA says it will use the $3m it has raised in an oversubscribed Series B round of funding to move the company from R&D to commercial wafer production.

Quanlight aims to commercialize a new dilute nitride (InGaNP) material system for red LEDs, for which it holds an exclusive license from the University of California, San Diego, where the technology was originally developed by Charles Tu and Vladimir Odnoblyudov.

“We decrease the cost of manufacture, we increase stability at high drive currents, and we anticipate increasing brightness by a factor of more than two times,” said Odnoblyudov.
