After a four-month search, Natcore Technology Inc. says it has decided to establish the Natcore Research and Development (R&D) Center at Eastman Business Park in Rochester, N.Y.
Natcore currently conducts its research at three locations: Ohio State University, Rice University and China (through a joint venture). That work will now be consolidated in Rochester, although Natcore will continue its funded joint research program with the Barron Group at Rice University. According to the company, the new R&D center will enable Natcore to accelerate its development of thin-film solar cells and tandem solar cells using proprietary liquid phase deposition technology.
Natcore has signed a lease for dedicated office and laboratory facilities that will comprise two equipped labs, a clean room and administration offices.
