License Property
Licensor has developed and/or otherwise possesses rights to certain technology related to the manufacture of semiconductors and, in particular, photovoltaic platforms and devices.

The lead technology, named Mears Silicon Technology™, or MST®, is a thin film of reengineered silicon, typically 100 to 300 angstroms (or approximately 20 to 60 silicon atomic unit cells) thick.

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
Licensor hereby grants and agrees to grant to Licensee, effective upon license Effective Date, a world-wide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid up and royalty-free license, without the right to sublicense, under the Licensor's Intellectual Property Rights, to make, use, sell, offer for sale, import or otherwise commercialize or exploit Licensed Products, to use the Licensor's Technology in connection with the foregoing, and to otherwise operate Licensee and commercialize its products as contemplated in the Master Agreement. It is understood that the foregoing license to Licensee includes, without limitation, the right to change and make improvements and extensions to the Licensor's Technology. Furthermore, it is understood that Licensee shall have the right to commercially exploit such changes and improvements in accordance with such license.  This is to be used in the manufacture of Licensee's solar modules.  

Subject to exceptions in this Agreement, Licensee shall pay royalties to Licensor for the use of MNIP. The royalty shall be based on two main elements: the success of the relevant MNIP in achieving Cost Savings and the success of that MNIP in achieving Added Value.  MNIP means Material New IP.

Licensed Products means Wafers, Cells, and/or Modules, as the case may be, in which the Wafers are made using String Ribbon Technology.

License Property
The Licensor develops and manufactures multi-crystalline silicon wafers utilizing String Ribbon™ proprietary wafer technology. The technology involves a unique process to produce multi-crystalline silicon wafers by growing thin strips of silicon that are then cut into wafers. This process substantially reduces the amount of silicon and other processing costs required to produce a wafer when compared to conventional sawing processes. Silicon is the key raw material in manufacturing multi-crystalline silicon wafers. The wafers they produce are the primary components of photovoltaic “PV” cells which, in turn, are used to produce solar panels.

IPSCIO Record ID: 3143

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.

IPSCIO Record ID: 28401

License Grant
The University hereby grants to the Licensee and its Affiliates an exclusive, worldwide License to make, have made, use, offer for sale, have sold, sell and import Products within the Field and within the territory for a period of eight years from the effective date of this Agreement. If in the final year of the License Term Company is actively marketing and selling Products, then the License Term shall extend for another eight year term. Company shall have the exclusive right to grant SubLicenses to third parties.
License Property
The technology being Licensed is based on Assistant Professor of Chemistry’s “electronic glue” chemistry. This technology, management believes, has various commercial applications where more efficient transfer of electrical charges between nanocrystals is desired, such as printed semiconductors, roll-to-roll printed solar cells and printed nano-sensors.
