AccuStrata is a graduate company from the University of Maryland business incubator (2010) and is a member of Parklawn Business Park in Rockville, MD, located in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
The company founders are several distinguished professionals in optics, semiconductors and thin film technology, and business entrepreneurship. Dr. George Atanasoff is a founder and the president of the company. Dr. Marc Epstein is a founder and the Chairman of the Board of Directors. Among the other founders are Steve Seiden, Serge Gagolin, Edmund Ruffin and Veska Kita. The company has raised private funding, funding from Maryland TEDCO and the University of Maryland.
In 2009 the company received SBIR funding from the National Science Foundation and the Environmental Protection Agency and began developing in situ optical monitoring and predictive modeling technology for the solar industry. Its first technology demonstration was performed in 2009 at a USA manufacturer of amorphous silicon thin film solar panels. In 2010, the technology was expanded into the manufacturing of crystalline silicon solar cells. The company signed a large customer contract with a crystalline silicon solar manufacturer in India. In 2011, the company expanded its technology into the manufacturing of low-E coatings for architectural windows. A new thin film anti-reflective coating for crystalline silicon was developed and successfully showcased in Tempe, AZ.
AccuStrata has developed a patented platform technology consisting of software and hardware in order to improve performance and optimize manufacturing yield of a variety of products using in situ monitoring, next-generation predictive modeling, and adaptive process control.
The company has raised private equity and received over $3 million in federal and state grants for the development of its technology. During the last 4 years, the company has been focused on multiple Cleantech products and applications: Solar, Energy Efficient Windows and High Brightness Light Emitting Diodes (HB-LEDs). Currently the company is expanding its marketing effort in biotechnology and food safety markets.
