The Coretec Group, Inc.™Advancing Technology for Promising Markets, such as energy storage, solar, solid state lighting, printable electronics and 3D displays.

The Coretec Group, Inc. is headquarted in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Formed from the recent merger of 3DIcon Corporation® (3DIcon) and Coretec Industries, LLC, The Coretec Group's innovative technology is based on the production of a high value silicon precursor, cyclohexasilane Si6H12 (CHS) and the development of a 3D volumetric display (CSpace™).

A key advantage of CHS is being a liquid precursor to silicon-containing electronic materials versus the commonly used gaseous monosilane (SiH4). As a liquid precursor, CHS offers the ability to use solution-based processing routes leading to safer handling, more efficient materials utilization, significant cost savings and performance enhancing material structures. Another key advantage of CHS is the lower temperature for decomposition of CHS to silicon, leading to the use of a broader range of substrates, many of which are lower cost. Monosilane requires high temperatures (500 - 800°C) for decomposition to silicon, whereas CHS forms silicon at temperatures as low as 300°C. In addition, during the decomposition of CHS, the rate at which silicon is formed increases by a factor of six relative to monosilane, leading to significant cost savings due to the increased rate of production. The company anticipates that CHS will first be used as an alternative to current methods to introducing silicon into lithium ion batteries or when manufacturing silicon-based microelectronics and printable/flexible electronics.

CSpace is a unique 3D display technology that is designed to produce high-resolution full-color, true 3D images. The display does not require special viewing aids or glasses, does not cause viewer fatigue during prolonged use, and is capable of producing surface rendered solid looking or translucent images for viewing inside of objects, such as human organs, cargo containers, baggage, ocean or terrain features, or troop carriers, all of which are beyond the visualization capabilities of current display technologies. Displays based on CSpace™ have potential applications in fields including medical imaging, passenger baggage and cargo scanning, military performance-mission planning, tactical awareness and decision support, post engagement assessment-engineering, geospatial exploration, education and training applications, entertainment applications, air traffic control systems, space transportation systems, and earth science research, among others.
