Silicon-Based Technology for Tomorrow's Markets
The Coretec Group™ is committed to enabling next-generation technology for advanced technology markets. Our product portfolio is based on the production of innovative silicon products, starting with Cyclohexasilane, Si6H12 (CHS), a liquid that converts to polysilane when exposed to heat or UV irradiation followed by amorphous silicon or ultimately crystalline silicon when annealed.
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.
A pure material, CHS is a key precursor for advanced applications including semiconductors, energy storage, solid-state lighting, and solar energy, among others. Through our partnership with Evonik, The Coretec Group is providing materials for evaluation during new product development and once commercial, in larger-scale production quantities. Additional derivatives and products with varying purities may be pursued for commercialization in order to meet specific market demands and lower costs.
