Have you ever heard an atom drop?

Have you ever seen one?  You know, an atom?

Well, we haven’t either. But when your name starts with Atomic……you get asked this a few times.

More importantly, is that we can control atoms at ALD NanoSolutions. Specifically, we can get them to bond and adhere themselves to other atoms……one at a time.

Some people have said this must take forever. In fact, it does when you’re not doing it the way we do it at ALDN. We’ve spent a lot of time perfecting it so that it is nearly instantaneous and, more importantly, cost effective.

What’s really interesting is that when you manage to connect atoms on the surface of a substrate in a controlled manner you can create new materials – new materials with nanoscale properties. By modifying the surface of a nano-scale material, or modifying a larger-scale material at its atomic level, the underlying substrate characteristics are retained, yet the benefits of a functionalized coating are gained in very cost effective ways.

In fact, this may be the most effective / sustainable way to construct materials too.  We call it atom-efficiency.

We have spent over 10 years developing a portfolio of chemistries, materials and processes for particles, polymers and other substrates that exhibit amazing performance. What we’ve found is that many interesting things happen at the surface of materials. Some say “everything happens at the interface or surface of materials”. All we do is control the surface of the material – very, very controlled – one atom at a time…. certainly others have done this too….. but what we are really good at, is doing this very fast and at the lowest possible cost.

We invite you to take a look at the information in this site or better yet – send us a note or call us – we’d love to know more about how this unique surface modification technology can help you – help your customers.
