Natcore Technology is a research and development company pioneering solar cells with improved efficiency and reduced cost. Natcore scientists – among the most renowned in the solar community – have completely rethought the way solar cells are made. They are developing approaches that will define the next generation of cell, using a laser as part of a revolutionary approach to apply metal contacts to the cell. This will dramatically lower cost while significantly increasing efficiency. Natcore’s output is technology: their intellectual property is currently protected by 62 patents granted or pending. From their research facility at Eastman Business Park, Natcore plans to move their technologies into the marketplace through partnerships that ultimately yield licensing and royalty revenue streams.
