Helio is commercialising materials for brighter, more colourful and lower power displays.
Emanating from Oxford and Cambridge universities, we are supported by investors who share our vision and ambition to be market leader in the industry.
We work with the best scientific and commercial brains in our field to expedite solid research and development. We look forward to a very bright future.
We employ the best material scientists and engineers in the world in our field and we look for qualified, experienced and passionate researchers to join our existing team.
We are located in custom built labs in beautiful surroundings at the Wood Centre for Innovation in Oxford.
If you want to be part of a well-funded, fast-growing start-up, and feel that your skills and experience match current career opportunities at Helio, we'd like to hear from you.
Helio Display Materials was spun out from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge by our founders, Professors Sir Richard Friend and Henry Snaith. The fundamental IP created by these eminent scientists is exclusivley licensed to us by the universities.
Distinguished for his work with organic polymers and the electronic properties of molecular semiconductors, Sir Richard was Cavendish Professor of Physics at the University of Cambridge from 1995 to 2020. He holds a wealth of prestigious awards and honours celebrating his achievements iincluding a knighthood for services to physics gained in 2003.
Henry gained his PhD in 2005 for research on polymer solar cells, supervised by Sir Richard. He holds numerous accolades for his work, and currently leads the Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Device Group at Oxford University.
In 2010, Henry founded the now hugely successful Oxford PV, leaders in perovskite solar cell technology.
Our investors include leading venture capitalists Longwall Ventures, BGF and IP Capital who each bring a wealth of experience in supporting start-up technology companies. They were attracted by our:
- Excellent prospects of being first to market with the next generation of display materials technology
- Promise to bring superior efficiency and lower costs to the industry through metal halide perovskites
- Fundamental IP in light emitting applications of perovskites exclusively licensed from Oxford and Cambridge universities
- Rapid speed of progress
- Close relationship with the founders, their active involvement assuring that our developments are based on the world leading science base in perovskites
