RUSNANO reveals the technology roadmap 'The use of nanotechnologies in the manufacturing of Light-emitting diodes'
(Nanowerk News) The roadmap "The use of nanotechnologies in the manufacturing of Light-emitting diodes" describes the different types of light-emitting devices and compares their possible market future with trends observed currently in the light-emitting diodes (LED) segment. It also shows the most promising directions for further development of LED technology and points out the required support measures which include the development of necessary infrastructure and R&D. The roadmap is built by defining the lucrative markets for LEDs and LED-based devices and drawing the possible ways of entering them, thus creating the chain "markets"-"technologies"-"research".
The published document summarizes the results of analytic work done by a large group of Russian and foreign experts. It was initiated in 2008 by RUSNANO and Statistical Research and Economics of Knowledge Institute of the State University-Higher School of Economics (SU-HSE).
The roadmap technique was developed by RUSNANO and SU-HSE on the base of known methods from UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization), Cambridge University and other sources. The LED roadmap creation involved 113 specialists including 9 non-Russian experts.
RUSNANO is currently developing similar technological roadmaps for carbon fibers, oil refining catalyzers, nuclear energy complex, rocket and space industry, aviation, medicine, drinking water purification, energy-saving and machining tools.
