Abstract:
Nanoco Group plc (AIM: NANO), a world leader in the development and manufacture of quantum dots and other nanomaterials, announces that it has signed a joint development agreement with Tokyo Electron, the major Japanese production equipment supplier, for the development of a solar photovoltaic (PV) nanomaterial film.

Nanoco Signs Solar PV Agreement with Tokyo Electron

UK | Posted on June 14th, 2010

This agreement marks Nanoco's first commercial relationship in the solar energy sector, building on the Company's existing relationships in the LED lighting market.

Tokyo Electron is a major manufacturer and supplier of production equipment for the semiconductor, flat panel display and solar industries. Further information about Tokyo Electron is available at its website, www.tel.com.

Under the terms of the agreement, Nanoco will develop a solar-active nanomaterial film for incorporation into Tokyo Electron's solar cell manufacturing equipment. Nanoco will receive upfront and milestone payments during the nine-month development phase after which it is anticipated that a supply and license agreement will be signed.

Michael Edelman, Nanoco's Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are delighted to enter this agreement with Tokyo Electron, marking our first commercial relationship in the solar energy sector. We are confident that our nanomaterial technology has the potential to deliver highly efficient, printable, solar-active films and look forward to working with Tokyo Electron in making these commercially available."
