NextGen Nano is a high-tech company with a focus on the empowerment of the individual. By decentralising power generation from governments and traditional grids, we are striving to have a deliberate positive environmental impact, whilst reducing reliance on pollutants and finite materials.
NextGen Nano has developed benchmark IP that may hold the key to advancements in the decentralising of energy, in line with recent Government CO2 emission and climate policy goals.
Our breakthrough technology replaces existing solutions (fabricated with pollutant, finite materials) with earth-friendly biopolymers. This breakthrough enables NextGen Nano to develop solar cells that produce energy with unrivalled efficiency at a far lower cost than existing hardware.
This technology allows robust, transparent cells to be applied to flexible surfaces, thus making it more usable and cost-effective than ever before, as well as practical for multiple potential real-world applications.
The company is headed by DR Franky So. Dr Franky So holds 80 issued patents and has published more than 160 peer-reviewed articles. He is the editor-in-chief of the journal Materials Science and Engineering Reports and serves as an associate editor for IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics, IEEE Journal of Display Technology, SPIE Journal of Photonic Technology and Organic Electronics. Franky is the former head of the OLED research group at Motorola, where he was named a Distinguished Innovator and Master Innovator.
He is a Lecturer of the IEEE Photonics Society, a Charter Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, and a Fellow of IEEE, OSA and SPIE. In 2015, he joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the North Carolina State University, where he is currently the Walter and Ida Freeman Distinguished Professor.
