Washington D.C. (March 1, 2016) – Boris Feigelson’s group from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratories have just published a new article in the Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology A, Growth per cycle of alumina atomic layer deposition on nano- and micro-powders, concerning alumina growth rate on particles using ALD NanoSolutions’ RX rotary reactor. The paper investigates the growth rate of ALD alumina on particles and shows similar results to past work with a growth rate per cycle of 0.15 – 0.20 nm/cycle at 150 °C. In addition, they investigated a range of nanometer-scale particle sizes to determine if particle size has any effect on growth rate. They report that the […]
ALD NanoSolutions and the University of Colorado awarded a US Patent for Deposition of Thin Films onto Li-Ion Battery Electrodes
DENVER, CO (Nov. 24, 2015) – Extending its proprietary Particle ALDTM and Polymer ALD™ technology platform, ALD NanoSolutions (ALDN) has exclusively licensed technology from the University of Colorado to develop novel battery electrode coatings. The newly issued US Patent Number 9,196,901 “Lithium Battery Electrodes with Ultra-Thin Alumina Coatings” covers a process to create proprietary films which provide critical physical and chemical properties for extending the lifetime of lithium ion batteries. Using atomic layer deposition, the innovation allows for alumina coatings to penetrate into the electrode and conformally coat the active electrode particles. This precision surface coating builds physical strength as well as providing chemical protection in the lithium battery electrodes […]
Denver, CO – ALD NanoSolutions is proud to announce that our article in JVST-A was one of the most read ALD articles from 2014. The article, Atmospheric pressure spatial atomic layer deposition web coating with in situ monitoring of film thickness, featuring our senior scientist, Dr. Markus Groner, with graduate student Alex Yersak and Professor Y.C. Lee from the University of Colorado – Boulder, discusses the in situ analysis of ALD growth on the first atmospheric pressure spatial ALD web coating reactor. It demonstrates ALD NanoSolutions’ commitment to innovation in roll to roll ALD and process control. Using reflectometry, ALD NanoSolutions and CU-Boulder were able to monitor thin film growth […]
