Novel Materials

Porotech focuses on the development of high performance and energy efficient wide-bandgap compound semiconductors such as GaN by applying cutting-edge material technologies and solutions to unleash the full potential of these materials to revolutionise the electronics industry.

Porotech’s unique production process allows the controlled creation of a new class of porous semiconductor materials and structures, which provide enhanced functionality. It enables Porotech to engineer a wide range of material properties, including optical, mechanical, thermal and electrical properties, and consequently offers an entirely new material platform for semiconductor devices to be built upon. Its multifunctional GaN semiconductor wafers enable the cost-effective manufacture of LEDs, lasers, power electronics, quantum light sources and sensors, and solar cells.

IQ Capital invested in Porotech at Seed stage in 2019.
