Natcore Technology is the exclusive licensee, from Rice University, of a thin-film growth technology enabling room-temperature growth of various silicon oxides on silicon wafers in a liquid phase deposition (LPD) process. Although the implications of this discovery for semiconductors and fiber optics are significant and wide-ranging, the technology has immediate and compelling applications in the solar sector.
A nanomaterials company developing proprietary technologies and processes to provide novel properties for a wide range of applications that include industrial polymers, plastics, composites and additives.
The inspiration for NBD came from the Namib Desert Beetle, a beetle that has the ability to harvest water every morning in the Namibian desert. Based on years of research coming from elite university laboratories, NBD focuses on thin film coatings that enhance heat transfer through condensation, de-misting and anti-scaling characteristics.
nCoat exploits nano-level processes and nano-formulated materials to develop coatings that produce revolutionary performance in heat management, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, friction reduction, superior bond strength and improved appearance.
