In May 2014, Nexdot participated in the organization of the “30 years of colloidal quantum dots” conference in Paris, which brought together all the world players in the sector, including Louis Brus, Aleksey Yekimov and Alexander. L. Efros, the three researchers behind the discovery of quantum dots.
In 2016, Nexdot hired Philippe Gounine as Chief Executive Officer and raised € 3.5 million from external investors. These funds are being used to build a team of junior and senior researchers, engineers and technicians with the highest level of expertise in the field, making it a top research team. It also allows the acquisition of additional equipment, essential for the adaptation of synthesis methods on an industrial scale. These investments will also accelerate the development of specific methods for the adaptation of quantum dots to existing production lines, particularly for the production of screens and lighting fixtures.
In 2016, Nexdot left the premises of the ESPCI to settle in the Biocitech technology center, better adapted to its activities and with access to larger facilities.
