IPSCIO Record ID: 274276

License Grant
The Licensee desires to have a research license to determine the feasibility of incorporating such technology in its products.

For the Technology Transfer, Licensor shall transfer the tangible Licensor Technology deliverables.

For the Research License, Licensor grants a license, in and to the Licensor Technology and under the Assignable Patents, to design, make, have made and use Licensed Products for research purposes only, including providing prototypes thereof to prospective customers to determine feasibility and customer acceptance.

For the Patent Assignment Option, the Licensee shall have the exclusive option to acquire the Assignable Patents.

License Property
Licensor has developed certain electro-kinetic display technology.

Licensed Product means any product, product line, service, device, system, component, hardware, software or any combination of the foregoing, which is made, used, imported, exported, distributed, sold, offered for sale, or developed by a Party and which, in the absence of a license granted under this Agreement, would infringe at least one claim of one of the Assignable Patents or the Follow-on Patents or otherwise uses the Licensor Technology in its use or manufacture.

The licensed property includes information for Formulations for black EKD fluid, Formulation for structure resin, Embossing patterns and design files, and Electrical driving schemes.

Field of Use
The Field of Use means any field including imaging applications, which for purposes hereof, means at least 126 single color pixels per inch or, equivalently, 42 side-by-side full-color pixels per inch, and signage, but excluding the tinting of windows, visors, goggles, and eyeglasses.

Electrokinetic (EK) film technology employs an optical switching film that can be applied to glass surfaces in windows or doors enabling electronic control of the color and tint.  The technology utilizes nanometer-sized pigment particles that are electrically charged and suspended in a liquid sandwiched between two clear substrates. A transparent conductor is deposited on the inside surfaces of the plastic films. In a non-energized state, the suspended pigment particles are distributed uniformly between the plastic films, and will absorb, transmit, or reflect light depending on the properties of the suspended pigment. When the proper electrical signal is applied to the conductive Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) layers, an electrical field is created and the charged pigment particles collect in micro-embossed holes in a layer of polymer resin over the transparent conductor surface. As the charged pigment particles are collected, the fluid becomes highly transparent (light state). By applying a different electrical signal, the pigment can be dispersed back into the fluid to achieve the desired color density.
Licensee expects our future licensees to manufacture and distribute the electrokinetic film that is applied to or laminated in glass as part of automobile sunroofs, skylights, and windows within residential front doors.

Field of Use
'Licensed Product' means only a Light Valve Transportation Vehicle Window Product incorporating a Light Valve.

The term 'Licensed Product' shall not include Light Valves used or intended for use in any product other than as specifically defined herein, such as but not limited to, other window products not specifically defined herein, such as, but not limited to, Light Valve Architectural Window Products, window products for vehicles not specifically included in the definition of Light Valve Transportation Vehicle Window Product, and non-window products such as but not limited to displays, eyewear, sunvisors, toys, mirrors or filters for scientific instruments, lamps or contrast enhancement of displays. The term 'display' means any device for displaying letters, numbers, images or other indicia or patterns. Nothing contained herein shall permit LICENSEE to sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of a Light Valve which is not incorporated or intended to be incorporated as described above into a Light Valve Transportation Vehicle Window Product.

'Light Valve' means a variable light transmission device comprising: a cell including cell walls, containing or adapted to contain an activatable material, described hereinafter, such that a change in the optical characteristics of the activatable material affects the characteristics of light absorbed by, transmitted through and/or reflected from the cell; means incorporated in or on the cell, or separate therefrom for applying an electric or magnetic field to the activatable material within the cell; and coatings (including, but not limited to, electrodes), spacers, seals, electrical and/or electronic components, and other elements incorporated in or on or combined with the cell. The activatable material, which the cell contains or is adapted to contain, includes in it solid suspended particles, which when subjected to a suitable electric or magnetic field, orient to produce a change in the optical characteristics of the device, and may be in the form of a liquid suspension, gel, film or other material.

'Light Valve Architectural Window Product' means a Light Valve used or intended for use solely as a window integrally incorporated in, or attached as a fixture to the external structure or internal structure of any building, whether permanent or temporary, and whether above or below ground.

'Light Valve Transportation Vehicle Window Product' means a Light Valve used or intended for use as a window (including sunroofs, windshields, and side and rear window panes which are an integral part of the internal or external structure) integrally incorporated in a military or civilian transportation vehicle. The term 'Light Valve Transportation Vehicle Window Product' shall not include a Light Valve used or intended for use as a sunvisor, but may include Light Valves which are used or intended for use in a military or civilian transportation vehicle as, or as part of, or are laminated to, or the surface area of which is primarily attached to, a window, sunroof or windshield. The term 'transportation vehicle' shall mean passenger cars, recreational vehicles, trucks, mobile cranes, buses, heavy trucks and trains, but shall not include other types of vehicles such as aircraft, boats, spacecraft and space stations.

The worldwide License provides for a royalty payable to the Licensor on sales of Licensed products, including SPD-Smart(tm) automotive glass products utilizing the Licensor's patented light-control technology, including smart sunroofs, roof glass systems, and windows.
