Frost & Sullivan's 2005 European Technology Leadership Award in the field of optical fiber technologies recently went to Liekki Corp. of Finland. The award recognizes Liekki's pioneering doped optical fiber manufacturing technology, based on the innovative use of direct nanoparticle deposition (DND) of rare earth metals. The core of this technology is a novel way of manufacturing nanoparticles and nanocoatings with accurate control of the material properties. Liekki has already licensed the use of the DND technology for the production of "self-cleaning" ceramic tile and flat glass coloring and coating (UV filtering and self-cleaning). The company expects its technology platform to find use in multiple sectors and is actively pursuing licensing.
