The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) signed a strategic agreement with Brilliant Matters to license the intellectual property of one of their semiconductors. Through this licensing agreement, Brilliant Matters will have access to a high-performing material developed at the NRC. The use of this material will help Brilliant Matters generate higher-performing semiconductors to produce organic photovoltaics at a lower cost. The final product, which will be produced in Canada, will increase the country's competitiveness on the organic semiconductor market and ultimately provide better and more affordable photovoltaics worldwide.
