I think it was the 1970s when I first realized that it was no longer possible to buy a television set that was made in America.
As time went on, I began to notice other products that had suffered a similar fate: stereo equipment, digital cameras, and small appliances immediately come to mind. I’m sure you could add to the list.
And I realized this: Whoever owns the technology owns the industry.

We have technology
that will change
That's a bold claim. But consider this: Natcore Technology controls a new thin-film growth process that promises to allow mass manufacturing of tandem solar cells with twice the efficiency of the best solar cells available today.
This would mean that solar energy would finally be cost-competitive with conventional power. And that we can significantly diminish our dependence on fossil fuels.
Moreover, our technology allows for solar cell production that eradicates the need for toxic silane; eliminates the need for intensive energy used to apply the antireflective coating; and significantly lowers silicon usage. But our world-changing technology also promises to have dramatic impact on semiconductor devices; optical components; eyewear; aerospace exploration; and architectural coatings, among other uses.
Efficiency of Tandem Solar Cells
Static Tandem Solar Cell
Perhaps our most important application: by increasing solar cell efficiency to 30% or more (standard cells are about 17% efficient), tandem solar cells can nearly double solar cell power output.
