Auburn Hills, MI – January 22, 2008 – Octillion Corp. (Symbol: OCTL), an alternative energy technology incubator, today announced the appointment of nanotechnology and engineering expert, Prof. T.C. Yih, PhD, PE, to the Company’s Advisory Board.
A widely published authority on nanotechnology and engineering, Prof. Yih has authored more than 135 publications, and is credited with founding Nanomedicine (www.nanomedjournal.com), an international, peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes the latest advances in the innovative field of nano-scale medicine.
“I’m honored to welcome Prof. Yih to our team,” stated Mr. Nicholas S. Cucinelli, President and CEO of Octillion Corp. “I’m very much looking forward to making the most of his specific engineering and nanotechnology know-how as we continue to develop our NanoPower Window™ technology and capitalize on opportunities within the solar, renewable energy, and green building technology space.”
Prof. Yih brings Octillion expertise in nanosystems, nanomanipulation, solar energy, ocean engineering, hazardous waste mitigation, and bio-electro-mechanic systems, as well as nanomedicine, computer-aided design, and knowledge-based software development.
He previously served as Professor and Chair of the Mechanical Engineering and Biomechanics Department at the University of Texas at San Antonio, and is currently Vice Provost for Research at Oakland University (OU), where his responsibilities include overseeing the establishment of the University’s Nanomedical Science & Engineering Research Institute and actively seeking external collaborators in the nanosciences and renewable energy fields.
“I am delighted to assist Octillion in its efforts to develop and commercialize promising renewable energy technologies,” stated Prof. Yih. “I am especially looking forward to supporting the Company’s existing NanoPower Window and nanosilicon deposition research, as well as working to identify new opportunities in sustainable energy.”
Prof. T.C. Yih earned his Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Offshore/Coastal Engineering at National Ocean University in Taiwan, and his Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, D.C., with emphasis on Thermal Science and Solar Energy. Prof. Yih completed his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at CUA, specializing in Design/Analysis of Mechanical Systems, CAD/CAE, Knowledge-Based Software Development, and Biomedical Engineering.
SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. is a developer of next generation, transparent electricity-generating SolarWindow™ coatings.
SolarWindow™ coatings generate electricity on see-through glass and flexible plastics with colored tints popular to skyscraper glass. Unlike conventional systems, SolarWindow™ can be applied to all four sides of tall towers, generating electricity using natural and artificial light conditions and even shaded areas. SolarWindow™ uses organic materials, which are dissolved into liquid, ideal for low-cost high-output manufacturing; and is the subject of a patent pending technology.
The company’s Proprietary Power Production & Financial Model (Power & Financial Model) uses photovoltaic (PV) modeling calculations that are consistent with renewable energy practitioner standards for assessing, evaluating and estimating renewable energy for a PV project. The Power & Financial Model estimator takes into consideration building geographic location, solar radiation for flat-plate collectors (SolarWindow™ irradiance is derated to account for 360 degree building orientation and vertical installation), climate zone energy use and generalized skyscraper building characteristics when estimating PV power and energy production, and carbon dioxide equivalents. Actual power, energy production and carbon dioxide equivalents modeled may vary based upon building-to-building situational characteristics and varying installation methodologies.
