Established in 2003 in the USA (with operations in Sweden as well) based on research performed at Lund University, Glo is developing GaN nanowire based micro LEDs for display applications. In 2021 the company was acquired by Nanosys.
Glo says that its Nanowires enable red, green and blue microLEDs with the reliability of an inorganic materials system. Glo is targeting the entire display market, from small-sized wearable displays to TV panels and large-area displays and can use its microLEDs on both CMOS and LTPS backplanes. Glo is a fabless operation - it has an manufacturing agreement with one of the world's largest LED makers to produce its microLED chips and it has also signed an agreement with one of the world's largest display makers to produce the actual MicroLED panels.
