Research Centre: Advanced Electronics and Photonics
The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) signed a strategic agreement with Brilliant Matters to license the intellectual property of one of their semiconductors. Through this licensing agreement, Brilliant Matters will have access to a high-performing material developed at the NRC. The use of this material will help Brilliant Matters generate higher-performing semiconductors to produce organic photovoltaics at a lower cost. The final product, which will be produced in Canada, will increase the country's competitiveness on the organic semiconductor market and ultimately provide better and more affordable photovoltaics worldwide.
October 20 is World Statistics Day. At the NRC, we use statistics and data on a daily basis, in all of our research areas, to answer questions for our clients and collaborators and to advance scientific knowledge. The NRC’s Digital Technologies Research Centre is particularly active in the analysis of data, and offers a specialized facility called the Data Analytics Centre where government, academic and industrial clients can collaborate with NRC experts to analyze their data.
