Morton Photonics is a fabless design house developing advanced photonic component and sub-system technologies that enable Microwave Photonics and Sensing Systems, plus applications of these technologies in future datacenter, datacom and optical fiber communications systems. Our focus is on photonic integration on the Silicon Photonics Platform, taking advantage of CMOS Foundry capabilities to manufacture Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) devices at high volume and with low cost. Our approach includes heterogeneous integration of additional materials to provide the required performance; III-V materials for optical gain, linear phase modulation and detection; silicon nitride for ultra-low loss waveguides and components; magneto-optical material for optical isolation; and PZT for ultra-low power actuators.
Next Energy Technologies, Inc. is developing an entirely new generation of solar technology based on breakthrough organic semiconductors. NEXT’s soluble small molecule organic photovoltaic technology, or SSM-OPV, enables solar cells to be printed as an ink in a low-cost, roll-to-roll process akin to printing a newspaper or photographic film. The small molecules at the heart of this technology uniquely enable NEXT to overcome limitations of earlier generations of polymer-based thin-film solar. NEXT’s SSM-OPV materials dramatically improve the scalability, stability, and efficiency over previous generations of OPV, resulting in product lifetimes and conversion efficiencies that can be competitive with conventional solar technology.
PowWow Energy, Inc. is a leading innovator in the Agriculture & Water sector. Based in Sunnyvale, California, PowWow's team leverages Big Data to solve the problems of ranchers and farmers, and help the environment by making better use of our water and energy resources. Its first product, the smart leak detectorTM, is a Cleantech Open 2013 winner.
Southern California Edison is one of the largest electric utilities in California, serving more than 14 million people in a 50,000 square-mile area of central, coastal and Southern California, excluding the City of Los Angeles and certain other cities. Based in Rosemead, California, the utility has been providing electric service in the region for more than 120 years. SCE's service territory includes more than 180 cities. SCE helps their customers stretch their energy dollars through rebates and incentives, and their power mix includes more alternate and renewable energy - from a greater variety of resources - than nearly any other utility in the world.
