Natcore’s Black Silicon Highlighted at Bright Lights Conference


“Game-Changing Technology” Cited as
Reason for Invitation.

Red Bank, NJ – (October 1, 2012) –Natcore Technology Inc. (TSX-V: NXT; NTCXF.PK was recently a featured presenter at the prestigious Bright Lights Conference, Wall Street’s only disruptive technology conference, which focuses exclusively on companies the sponsor believes can transform their industries with game-changing technology.

Natcore was selected as one of 30 public and private companies to present at this invitation-only event. Aimed at making solar power cost-competitive with power generated using fossil fuels, Natcore’s technologies produce solar cells by growing thin film anti-reflective coatings on silicon substrates in a liquid bath at ambient pressures. Natcore believes these cells will be less expensive, more productive, and less environmentally harmful than cells produced using standard industry processes.

Natcore’s presentation centered on the company’s black silicon and tandem solar cell technologies. The conference was attended by institutional and private investors with interest in technology sectors ranging from clean energy to enterprise software to healthcare

“This was the second time in recent months that respected observers have called our technology ‘game-changing,'” says Chuck Provini, Natcore president and CEO. “Lux Research used the same language in a research report.”

The Bright Lights conference is sponsored by MDB Capital Group, an investment banking and institutional research firm focused exclusively on companies possessing or seeking to develop market changing, disruptive technologies and intellectual property. This was their third annual conference.

Natcore Technology is the exclusive licensee, from Rice University, of a remarkable new thin-film growth technology. Although the implications of this discovery for semiconductors and fiber optics are significant and wide-ranging, our technology has two immediate and compelling applications in the solar sector:

  • It could enable silicon solar cell manufacturers to reduce silicon usage by over 60%— thereby dramatically decreasing costs, improving profit margins and boosting throughput.
  • Most importantly, it promises to allow, for the first time, mass manufacturing of super-efficient (30%+) tandem solar cells with double the power output of today’s most efficient devices. Projections show our process has the potential to allow these solar cells to be manufactured at a lower cost than anything currently commercially available.

 

Making Solar Energy Economically Viable

Advocates of alternative energy face an inconvenient, but incontrovertible, fact:

It takes hugely rich government subsidies to make 
solar energy cost-competitive with conventional power.

Most people believe it’s going to be that way for many years to come. We think they’re going to be proven wrong.

That’s because we control a remarkable new thin-film growth process that could completely change the way solar cells are manufactured.

We’re replacing the traditional thermal vacuum processes, such as CVD and PECVD (chemical vapor deposition, plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition, etc.) for making solar cells with our liquid phase deposition (LPD) wet chemistry process.

We think LPD is the future of solar. It is at the core of everything we do. It results in solar cells of higher quality, and is safer, cleaner and less expensive than CVD. That’s why we’re using multiple LPD-based applications to make solar power cost-competitive with conventional power.

 

David Levy Joins Natcore Technology

As Director of Research & Technology

Red Bank, NJ — (September 6, 2012) — Dr. David H. Levy, the recipient of a PhD in Chemical Engineering from MIT who invented the atmospheric Spatial Atomic Layer Deposition process (SALD), has joined Natcore Technology Inc. (TSX-V: NXT; NTCXF.PK) as Director of Research & Technology.

 

Natcore Technology Closes $2.5 Million Non-Brokered Private Placement

Red Bank, NJ — (July 20, 2012) —Natcore Technology Inc. (TSX-V: NXT; NTCXF.PK) has today completed a C$2.5 million private placement. The funds will be used to complete optimization of the company’s promising black silicon technology and to build a production version of Natcore’s AR-Box™ processing station. This version would be capable of etching and coating cells with black silicon at a rate of 1,500 to 2,000 cells per hour.
