IPSCIO Record ID: 4456

License Grant
The Licensee has an exclusive worldwide license and rights to sublicense any and all intellectual property conceived or developed under its sponsorship at the University.
License Property
Currently, research and development of the licensee's flexible, thin-film organic photovoltaic (OPV) and inorganic Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) technologies is being conducted at University's (Licensor's) research facility under the seven year 2013 Research Agreement dated December 20, 2013.

OPV are Organic semiconductors made from carbon-rich compounds with a structure tailored to optimize a particular function, such as responsiveness to a particular range of visible light. The use of organic compounds as semiconductors for commercial applications is very new.

Field of Use
Licensee is using it in organic semiconductor based photovoltaic cell technology.

OPV are Organic semiconductors made from carbon-rich compounds with a structure tailored to optimize a particular function, such as responsiveness to a particular range of visible light. The use of organic compounds as semiconductors for commercial applications is very new.  The Licensee is using it in organic semiconductor based photovoltaic cell technology. A particular advantage of OPV technologies is the low cost of the materials used for the solar energy generating layers. Additionally, all of the fabrication temperatures are low and environmentally “green”, greatly reducing the ancillary costs required in conventional solar cell production.  Furthermore, the growth of the thin film layers can be accomplished directly onto the plastic or metal foils and therefore is no need for energy-intensive and expensive epitaxial growth required by inorganic semiconductors such as silicon or GaAs. Rather, there is the opportunity to “print” organic solar cells onto continuous rolls of plastic in an ultra-high-speed manufacturing process. The potential for printed electronics – making solar cells “by the kilometer” rather than on one substrate at a time – makes OPV a potentially revolutionary step in the widespread acceptance and deployment of solar energy. Since the organic films are see-through, lightweight and extremely thin (in this case the entire structure is only 0.1% the thickness of a human hair), they can be made semitransparent and adjusted to any desirable color. As a result, there are significant opportunities to achieve heretofore unrealizable applications such as car paint that allows vehicle coating to act as a source of power for an electric car; windows that can be coated with a clear semi-transparent film that captures photons from the sun to provide power for inside of the building, and fabric that can be made coated in order to make clothes, tents, flags, or lightweight roll-out power mats.

License Grant
University grants to Licensee an exclusive license under the Rice Intellectual Property to make, have made, use, import, offer for sale, sell, lease, or otherwise transfer University's Licensed Products in the Field of Use in the Territory, with the right to sub-license, during the Term of this Agreement.

The Licensee has obtained the exclusive rights to License and subLicense to develop, manufacture, market and exploit the Licensor's inventions, patent applications and any issued patents in the case of the Licensee, for the manufacture and sale of photovoltaic cells and photovoltaic applications and in the case of Licensee for the manufacture and sale of quantum dots for electronic and medical applications (excluding photovoltaic applications).

License Property
The University is the owner of certain inventions and patent applications, know-how and rights pertaining to the synthesis of uniform nanoparticle shapes with high selectivity.

Nanoparticle are materials with features in the nanoscale, which features can be beneficial in a number of applications. Quantum dots are atomic crystals, tiny nanoparticles which can operate as up converters or down converters, emitting either photons or electrons when excited. The color of light emitted varies depending on the size of the quantum dot so that photonic emissions can be tuned by the creation of quantum dots of different sizes. Their unique properties as highly efficient, next generation semiconductors have led to the use of quantum dots in a range of electronic and other applications, including in the biomedical, display and lighting industries. Quantum dots also have applications in solar cells, where their characteristics enable conversion of light energy into electricity, with the potential for significantly higher efficiencies and lower costs than existing technologies, thereby creating the opportunity for a step change in the solar energy industry through the use of quantum dots in printed photovoltaic cells.

With respect to the Licensor's patent applications, the Licensor made a provisional filing for an invention disclosure titled “synthesis of uniform nanoparticle shapes with high selectivity” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on April 13, 2007 and a subsequent utility filing on April 11, 2008 under the Patent Cooperation Treaty.

PCT enables the U.S. applicant to file one application, 'an international application,' in a standardized format in English in the U.S. Receiving Office (the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office), and have that application acknowledged as a regular national or regional filing in any State or region that is party to the PCT. Dr. Michael Wong is a director of the Licensee Parent and is the inventor of the Licensor’s patent application Licensed by the Licensee.

The rights in Licensed Technology granted by Licensor to Licensee include the right to grant sublicenses as Licensee deems prudent.

Licensor hereby assigns to Licensee any and all of Licensor’s right, title, and interest in and to the mark SUNCONE (the 'Trademark').

License Property
The Licensed Technology to applies it to distributed energy systems, electric power plants, saline water desalination systems, and other applications.

Licensor has invented certain technology which may be able to economically collect solar energy using a novel method of non-imaging optics. Among other uses, this technology may be able to be used to produce steam to drive a generator to produce electrical power or to produce desalinated water from seawater or brackish water.

'Licensed Commodity Product' shall mean generated electrical power or desalinated water or other pumped liquids that are generated or purified, as applicable, using any product or device which, or the manufacture, use or sale of which, is covered by a Valid Claim of the Patent Rights. For purposes of clarity, Licensed Commodity Products are a subset of Licensed Products.

'Licensed Product' means any product or device which, or the manufacture, use, or sale of which, is covered by a Valid Claim of the Patent Rights, including but not limited to Licensed Commodity Products. A solar collector that resembles the invention described in Article 1.2 but does not have a flexible film cone reflector does not fit this definition of 'Licensed Product.' If a cable tracking system defined in the patent application of Article 1.2 is used to point an array of solar collectors, then the cable tracking system part of the system may be a 'Licensed Product' if it is covered by a Valid Claim of the Patent Rights.
