About Natcore Technology, Inc.

Natcore was incorporated in Delaware in 2003, specifically to exploit the patent pending technology over which it owns the exclusive license from Rice University. The licensed intellectual property (IP) controls the growth of thin and thick films of silicon dioxide and mixed silicon oxides on silicon and other substrates from an aqueous bath at room temperature and pressure.

Natcore seeks to become a global leader in the growth of thin and thick films of dielectric and semiconductor materials using non-vacuum, room temperature processes. Currently, Natcore's primary focus is to enter and lead the AR coating market for solar cells by selling a paradigm-shifting, low-cost technology to solar cell manufacturers that will enable those companies to realize significantly lower capital costs and higher profit margins from their own sales.
