Nanolumi is a lab-to-market technology and business accelerator for advanced luminescent material solutions.

Founded in 2018 in Singapore, our company offers high quality advanced luminescent material solutions such as perovskite nanocrystals. Perovskite nanocrystals are high performing semi-conductive nanocrystals with the unique emissive properties to re-create all colours exactly as we see it in our world on displays, offering lifelike colours that are extremely bright, pure and vivid.

Chameleon® Film, our company’s flagship product, is the industry’s first cadmium-free perovskite colour enhancement film (PEF) capable of achieving an unprecedented coverage of >90% REC. 2020 colour space. It is also the first cadmium-free green emitter compliant with all RoHS Directive for use in consumer products. Having successfully overcome previous major limitations of perovskite nanocrystals related to safety, stability and scalability, our IP-protected technology allows us to produce highly reliable solutions for premium displays.

In 2019, we successfully raised US$1M in seed funding to fuel customer acquisition, team expansion and the company’s mission to accelerate the adoption of emerging technologies in its portfolio by translating breakthrough research and late-stage R&D projects from the lab into products and applications for the market.

Nanolumi aims to be a lab-to-market leader for advanced materials by focusing on market-led innovations, an approach where solutions are developed based on a clear understanding of the opportunities and most urgent challenges faced by the industry, as well as by establishing strategic partnerships that minimise product development time and designing products mindfully to ensure they are cost competitive, scalable and compatible with existing supply chains.

The Nanolumi core team comprises of cross-disciplinary individuals and industry professionals with deep technical expertise, global business experience and a proven track record for commercialising new technologies; Our company has a total of 11 members and is growing rapidly.

Our Values

At Nanolumi, we don’t just work with nanomaterials, we know it’s the L.I.T.T.L.E. things that make us

Live Wholeheartedly

We believe in the balance between hustle and rest and are passionate about both; a leisurely first cup of coffee to start the day, stepping out at the end of the day from our role feeling proud of the work we’ve done, and unapologetically going on an adventure because we know we deserve it. Then choosing to live it all over again.

Innovate Purposefully

We believe innovation only matters when it’s a great idea, executed brilliantly that creates value in the world. And so, we don’t just innovate, we do it with a purpose.

Treat Respectfully

Diversity is the one true thing we have in common. We choose to celebrate this every day by treating each other with respect and we are rewarded with the rich ideas, stories, knowledge, talents and skills of the team.

Trust Openly

No fine print. We all hate reading it, so communicate honestly.

Learn Curiously

We learn because we want to, not because we have to, not because we are made to. We learn to become better problem-solvers, to become better at our craft, to be better people.

Ethics First

Doing the right things – for each other, our partners and customers – is expected all the time, every time.

Team Members

We’re inventors, innovators, entrepreneurs driven to make a visible difference in the world.
