Based on Weitekamp's PhD research under Nobel Laureate Bob Grubbs at Caltech and two-years of development supported by Cyclotron Road, COR Alpha is a 3d printing resin that aims to fill an unmet need for rugged polymers in the additive manufacturing market.
Cyclotron Road Innovators Raymond Weitekamp, founder of PolySpectra, and Richard Wang, cofounder of Cuberg, were both selected as part of the prestigious Forbes 30 Under 30 list for Energy. Weitekamp and Wang join previous Cyclotron Road 30 Under 30 honorees Marcus Lehmann and Colin Bailie, who were part of the list in 2016.
Polyspectra was featured last month in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN) as part of the magazine's annual "10 Startups to Watch" list.
Fortune reporter Katie Fehrenbacher came to visit Cyclotron Road in late September and spent some time getting an update from the program team, as well innovators Raymond Weitekamp, founder of polySpectra, and Jared Schwede co-founder of Spark Thermionics.
Cyclotron Road project lead Raymond Weitekamp and his collaborators were recently featured by the Berkeley Lab Newscenter for their work to develop energy efficient window coatings that can be painted directly onto panes of glass. The collaboration recently received funding from the Advanced Projects Research and Development Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) under it's OPEN award solicitation and includes the University of Colorado, Boulder, Berkeley Lab, Caltech, and Materia Inc. Weitekamp leads the polySpectra project at Cyclotron Road.
We're excited to announce that Cyclotron Road projects Spark Thermionics and Polyspectra have both been selected for negotiations as awardees for the 2015 Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) OPEN award. The award to Spark Thermionics will fund a newly formed spin out company collaborating with Berkeley Lab and Stanford University, along with several additional partners.
