Natcore Technology Acquires Vanguard Solar
Acquisition will strengthen Natcoreâ€™s portfolio of solar energy IP
Natcore Technology, listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, is the exclusive licensee of a thin-film growth technology, exclusively licensed from Rice University. Vanguard Solar has a proprietary chemical bath deposition (CBD) technology that is touted as a low-investment, low-cost process for coating carbon nanotubes (CNT's) with high-quality conformal semiconductor crystalline film. Two of Natcoreâ€™s scientific founders, who also founded Vanguard Solar, felt that the integration of Vanguard Solarâ€™s technology into Natcore's intellectual property portfolio would ensure continued expansion of the depth and breadth of Natcore's impact on the solar industry.
NWN Note: Vanguard Solar was a presenting company in the TechConnect-Nanotech Venture Program in 2009 in Houston, TX.
