Our Innovation strategy is dependent on collaboration.

We have a strong and successful history in UK and EU funded projects, and we are currently engaged in pursuing further gains in technical performance through Funded Development, Joint Development and Paid Development projects.

If you have a proposal or project idea, then we would very much like to hear from you to discuss collaboration.

Please Get In Touch to discuss any Research & Innovation project ideas, and potential collaboration with DesignLED.

Current Projects


This EU project is focused on laser processing of 3D nano structuring using advanced photochemistry.

The project will develop and validate an integral manufacturing approach (material, process and technology) for large area direct laser writing of 2D and 3D optical structures, targeting high speed production of optical surfaces with subwavelength resolution, using NonLinear Absorption. Developments in photochemistry and laser beam forming will allow producing structures at different scales (100 nm to 10 microns). An unedited productivity in freeform fabrication of 3D structures will trigger the manufacturing of new and powerful optostructures with applications in lighting, displays, sensing, etc.
