ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 11, 2021 — SunDensity, developer of photonic smart coating (PSC) technology, signed a research agreement with the University of Rochester’s Institute of Optics. The one-year agreement seeks to speed the manufacturing process and design of SunDensity’s nano-optical coating equipment. PSC, which earned SunDensity the top prize during the third annual Luminate NY competition, is able to improve solar output 20% more than other coatings for solar panels. The company will continue to use its funding to scale up its manufacturing process in Rochester, and it hopes to establish manufacturing facilities across the state.
