The MoreSun® Story
MoreSun® is the result of more than a decade of research, development, and field trials. It all began with research from Professor Chih-Hung (Alex) Chang at Oregon State University. In 2009 a team from OSU decided to spin-out Dr. Chang’s inventions and create CSD Nano (the predecessor company to Pellucere Technologies) to develop and commercialize his cutting-edge research in nano-scale coatings.
In MoreSun’s commercialization journey from advanced research to practical applications, the company received grants from the National Science Foundation, the Oregon NanoSciences and MicroTechnology Institute (ONAMI), and VertueLab (formerly Oregon’s BEST) .
In 2014, the company perfected and patented a unique, low-temperature curing AR Coating that it called MoreSun®. After extensive field trials, development of a unique and patented field deposition system, and further refinement of the formulations, the company began commercial-scale trials in 2017. In 2018, CSD Nano received a significant investment from Energy Innovation Capital, a leading venture fund focused on innovations in the energy field. The company was renamed Pellucere Technologies and in 2019 it began rolling out MoreSun® as well as its other related products.
