Natcore Technology Inc.

Natcore Technology is the exclusive licensee, from Rice University, of a remarkable new thin-film growth technology. Although the implications of this discovery for semiconductors and fiber optics are significant and wide-ranging, the greatest near-term potential lies in solar energy.

Their technology can dramatically reduce the amount of silicon used in manufacturing silicon solar cells, which promises to significantly reduce manufacturing costs. But perhaps the most compelling aspect of their technology is that it has the potential to allow for the mass manufacturing of super-efficient (30%+) tandem solar cells with double the power output of today’s most efficient devices.

Natcore's revolutionary film-growth process has been independently tested and refined by Battelle Memorial Institute, one of the world’s most respected laboratories, and the company is now working toward commercializing its technology through R&D programs at Rice University and Ohio State University’s Wright Center for Photovoltaics Innovation and Commercialization.

Natcore`s goal is to make stand-alone solar energy competitive with conventional power generation.
