Aurora Solar Technologies (ACU) has received a product order from an existing customer, for one of its DM-110h systems.
The company’s DM system is for use in solar cell and module research and development. Specifically, the system will be used to develop advanced solar cell designs for the customer’s solar panels, which are sold all over the world.
Aurora Solar has also recently extended its intellectual property (IP) portfolio. The Taiwan Patent Office and Chinese Patent Office have both allowed patents for the “Mapping of Measurement Data to Production Tool Location and Batch or Time of Processing”.
A patent for this proprietary method was previously granted in the United States as US Patent 10,559,709. These latest patents from Asian patent authorities extends Aurora Solar’s current portfolio to the field of process visualisation and control.
The company has also strengthened its workforce through the addition of Divya Ananthanarayanan to its scientific team. Divya conducted her Ph.D studies on the scientific method which is used by Aurora Solar’s DM family of infrared reflectometry measurement systems.
In collaboration with the company’s Dr Johnson Wong, Divya has developed a scientific approach that is now being applied to the DM product line. This new approach will increase the products’ measurement accuracy and expand its capability to measure critical-to-quality silicon wafer properties.
Aurora Solar’s CEO, Gordon Deans, welcomed these various improvements to the company’s order backlog, IP portfolio, and workforce.
“We are pleased to report on these important developments that build the company’s technology foundation and capabilities.
“The upcoming use of our DM products in customer R&D and the strengthening of our technology, scientific team, and patent portfolio provide us with the means to continue to build competitive advantage and positioning of our products for use in both current and developing solar cell technologies,” he said.
Aurora Solar Technologies (ACU) is up 14.29 per cent and is trading at C$0.24 per share, as of 1:52pm EDT.
