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.

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
The Licensor signed a License Agreement with the Chinese Licensee for solar ink and paste technology.
License Property
Nanoparticle ink technology formulations of aluminum, copper, nickel and silver will be delivered using aerosolized jet, inkjet and spray coating methods and other non-contact printing techniques that will enable ultra-thin silicon wafers to be used for photovoltaic (PV) applications.  

Currently, solar cell wafers must be thick enough to survive the direct contact metallization processes, which use screen printing equipment that comes in direct contact with the wafer and can exert enough force to cause ultra-thin wafers to break. Silicon is the largest cost in conventional solar cell production and the primary material in solar cells, making up 50-60% of overall cost, by APNT's estimates.

Field of Use
Using methods such as inkjet, aerosol jet and spray coating — all non-contact methods — will allow solar companies to save substantial material costs on the amount of silicon used by enabling the use of thin wafers.

License Property
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, it can produce steam to drive a generator to produce electrical power or produce desalinated water from seawater or brackish water. This technology is herein referred to as “Suncone.”

'Licensed Technology' means Licensor's invention comprising Suncone and the Technology.

A U.S. patent application under the title “Solar Power Concentrator Using Reflective Films” has been filed for this technology.

A new concentrating solar power (CSP) system called Suncone provides an economical method of collecting solar thermal energy for the production of electricity. Suncone can operate at higher temperatures and higher efficiencies than parabolic trough solar collectors and is less expensive than troughs or parabolic dish concentrators. Like the parabolic dish, it must be pointed toward the sun but requires less sun-tracking precision than a parabolic dish or parabolic trough. Suncone is less prone hail damage than troughs or dishes. Extensive patent searches have been made and a patent application has been filed.

Field of Use
'Field of Use' means the collecting of solar energy to generate electricity, desalinate water, and all other industrial applications.

Under the Agreement, the Licensee is responsible for funding the development and commercialization of the technology. The Licensee hopes to develop the Suncone technology into a device that can produce electricity or potable water at locations without access to the electrical grid.

License Property
Licensor is the owner of certain technology, including

(a) a concept to produce commercial fuel, electricity and O2 (herein referred to as the Solarec Technology), as further particularized in U.S. Patent No. 6,066,187;

(b) a concept to produce H2 from coal (herein referred to as the HTWO Technology),

(c) other solar processes for H2 production (herein referred to as the Solar Process Technology).

Licensed Technology means the following  the Solarec Technology, the Solar Process Technology, and the HTWO Technology.

Solarec is capable of producing clean carbon dioxide free hydrogen fuel utilizing high temperature solar energy. There are two stages to the process the first stage is unique and uses highly concentrated solar energy to convert carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide and oxygen, while the second stage uses common refining technology called the 'water gas shift reaction' to convert the carbon monoxide into hydrogen and carbon dioxide. The hydrogen will be converted to methanol for ease of transportation using standard industry technology, which will then be reformed back to hydrogen at the point of use. Oxygen and electricity are two by-products of the process that may also be sold.

Field of Use
Licensor and Licensee desire to enter into a license for the Licensed Technology. Licensee also desires to further develop the Licensed Technology, to maintain the intellectual property rights in the Licensed Technology, and to be kept informed of all new developments available or known to Licensor hereafter that may be potentially relevant to the Licensed Technology.
