Liquidia Technologies Receives $2 Million Advanced Technology Award
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC | Posted on October 2nd, 2007
Liquidia received the award to develop and manufacture high-efficiency, cost-effective patterned thin film solar cells based on the company's breakthrough PRINT(TM) platform for precision nanomolding. The PRINT platform combines photolithographic precision with a scalable continuous manufacturing process to commercialize nano-structured films for novel light management. Liquidia is currently working with partners to improve light management efficiency across photovoltaic and display applications.
The NIST ATP award is part of $138 million in expected total funding for research projects led by companies under the ATP. Projects were selected based on scientific and technical merit, and potential national benefit of the technology. For more information on NIST and the ATP award, please contact Michael Baum at .
