Silicon Based Technology For Tomorrow's Markets
Our product portfolio is based on the production of innovative silicon products, starting with Cyclohexasilane (CHS), Si6H12, a liquid that converts to polysilane when exposed to heat or UV irradiation followed by amorphous silicon and ultimately crystalline silicon. This novel liquid state provides new opportunities to introduce silicon-containing electronic materials, leading to improved performance, reduced cost, simplified manufacturing, and safer handling when compared to the more traditionally used monosilane. An extremely pure material, CHS is a key element for advanced applications including solar energy, energy storage, sensors, imaging and semiconductors, among others. Through our partnership with Evonik, The Coretec Group can provide materials for evaluation during new product development and once commercial, in larger scale production quantities. These materials can be varied in purity to meet specific market application needs and lower cost.
The Coretec Group is developing a prototype lithium-ion battery with a silicon anode that improves cycling stability. We anticipate this advancement in cycling stability, as well as longer run times and greater energy density, will have far-reaching applications including electric vehicles, mobile devices and space exploration.
The Coretec Group’s CHS is processed as a liquid, leading to the use of lower-cost, solution-based processes when compared to traditional gas-state silanes. Its novel composition delivers six times the silicon in one molecule, making it an excellent source of silicon in applications including energy storage, solar, solid-state lighting, microelectronics, and printable electronics.
Coretec CSpace™ replicates as closely as possible natural viewing conditions without limiting the viewing zone available to the viewer. CSpace is a patented glasses-free 3D static volumetric display technology that is being designed to produce high-resolution full- color, true 3D images from 3D datasets generated by imaging systems or transformed from raw datasets (e.g., cyber data) that can benefit from visualization in 3D.
