The firm's nanowire light-emitting diodes (nLEDs) are based on its proprietary hetero-structured semiconductor nanowire epitaxial growth and process technologies for which standard manufacturing equipment and materials can be utilized.

glō's technology sidesteps the technical limitations of current planar LED technology. It allows for the creation of highly efficient, stable and ultimately unique red, green, blue (RGB) emitters out of one material system. It aims to achieve the industry?s best color stability and ultimately enables the growth of red, green and blue emitters on the same wafer. Highly-efficient white LEDs with high color rendering will be possible without the need for phosphor conversion. It is the next enabling technology for advanced display, illumination and automotive applications.
