U-M startup focuses on nano-LEDs

You would be excused if, upon hearing the words “next-generation light-emitting diodes,” you responded with a blank stare.

But what if that technology could make your mobile phone’s display brighter and sharper, while drawing only half the power? Now we’ve got your attention!

A University of Michigan startup called NS Nanotech, which is based on research by Zetian Mi, a U-M professor of electrical engineering and computer science, is focused on new methods for growing nano-LEDs. The research will enable a new generation of green LEDs, which represents a significant innovation in the industry.

Mi says his work will “enable more directional, more stable and more saturated light emission.”
