by Staff Writers Octillion has announced efforts to streamline the deposition of silicon nanoparticles on to glass, an important process in development of the Company's NanoPower Window technology, a novel transparent window capable of generating electricity.

For the first time, while following previously established protocols for producing lab-scale prototypes, a traditionally time-consuming and cumbersome process for depositing nanoparticles on to glass has been successfully replaced with a faster, more cost-effective, commercially-available deposition technology. Octillion's NanoPower Window technology employs silicon nanoparticles that have the potential to enable conventional home, office and industrial glass windows to convert solar energy into electricity.

"This advancement allows us to speed-up one of the most important steps in development of our NanoPower Window technology, and certainly helps better prepare for the transition from the lab towards larger-scale testing and production," explained Mr. Nicholas S. Cucinelli, President and CEO of Octillion Corp. "This new ability to integrate off-the-shelf components in the deposition process is promising and indicative of a path towards building a lower-cost production technology."

To date, manually-constructed, purpose-built, custom electrospray system elements have been used for depositing nanoparticles on glass substrates. Now these critical mechanical components have been successfully replaced with less costly commercial components, conventionally limited to use in the manufacture of powerful, high-sensitivity chemical analytics instruments.

In the months ahead, the Company plans to further refine its proprietary electrospray system, enhance quality control and consistent replication of lab-scale samples, and continue efforts to identify, evaluate and acquire additional strategic, enabling, and complementary technologies.
