Research Frontiers was incorporated in New York in 1965 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1989. The Company develops and licenses its patented suspended particle device (SPD-Smart) light-control technology to other companies that manufacture and market either the SPD-Smart chemical emulsion, light-control film made from the chemical emulsion, lamination services, electronics to power end- products incorporating the film, or the end-products themselves such as ‘smart’ windows, skylights and sunroofs. Research Frontiers currently has approximately 40 companies that, in the aggregate, are licensed to serve four major SPD-Smart application areas, aerospace, architectural, automotive and marine products globally. SPD-Smart products use microscopic light-absorbing nanoparticles that are typically suspended in a film. These particles align when an electrical voltage is applied, thus permitting light to pass through the film. Currently, the Company’s licensees are categorized into four main areas: materials for making films or emulsions; film; lamination of film to glass or plastic, and end-products. Emulsion makers produce and combine the necessary materials from which SPD-Smart films are made. The film makers coat a thin layer of emulsion between two sheets of plastic film, each of which has a transparent conductive coating. The end-product licensees then integrate this film into a variety of SPD-Smart products, or make electronic systems to control such SPD-Smart products. The Company continues to make investments to develop, license and protect its intellectual property position. The Company has 30 United States and 255 foreign patents in force.
