Windows Convert to Solar Power using Nanosilicon

Vancouver, British Columbia [] Octillion Corp., a technology incubator focused on emerging market technologies, entered into a sponsored research agreement with scientists at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign for the development of a new patent-pending technology using nanosilicon photovoltaic (PV) solar cells that could make normal home and office glass windows capable of converting solar energy into electricity. Made possible through a discovery of an electrochemical and ultrasound process that produces identically sized (1 to 4 nanometers in diameter) highly luminescent nanoparticles of silicon, varying wavelengths of photoluminescence are provided. The process of producing silicon nanoparticles is supported by 10 issued US patents, 7 pending US patents, 2 issued foreign counterpart patents and 19 pending foreign counterpart patents.
