Octillion Increases Research Staff for the Development of NanoPower Windows
Auburn Hills, Mich.-based Octillion Corp. has announced that it has increased its research staff to four, with plans to further boost research personnel.
The company currently has ten U.S. patents, seven pending U.S. patents, two issued foreign counterpart patents and 19 pending foreign counterpart patents for its NanoPower window technology, which uses silicon nanoparticles that have the potential to convert normal home and office glass windows into ones capable of converting solar energy into electricity. The silicon nanoparticles are created through an electrochemical and ultrasound process that produces identically sized (one to four nanometers in diameter) highly luminescent nanoparticles of silicon that provide varying wavelengths of photoluminescence with high quantum down-conversion efficiency of short wavelengths.
