DENVER, COLORADO — (Marketwired – April 21, 2015) – ALD NanoSolutions and Meaglow are pleased to announce an exclusive partnership for the development and marketing of hollow cathode plasma sources uniquely suited for atomic layer deposition onto particles. An ALD NanoSolutions particle reactor combined with a Meaglow plasma source allows newly developed plasma ALD chemistries to be performed onto particles in appreciable quantities. This expanded capability enables development of new materials and their eventual commercialization. “When you’re coating hundreds of grams of powder, ALD product gases significantly change the gas composition, requiring a robust remote plasma source,” says Joe Spencer, Director of Operations at ALD NanoSolutions. “The Meaglow hollow cathode plasma […]
ALDNanoSolutions, CU-Boulder and CoorsTek awarded $90,000 grant for development of new additive manufacturing precursors.
DENVER, COLORADO — (Feb. 18, 2015) – ALD NanoSolutions continues its long standing relationship with the University of Colorado with a $90,000 grant from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. The funding from the Advanced Industry Accelerator grant will develop direct ink writing using particle ALD core-shell precursors for net-shape additive manufacturing of advanced 3-D ceramic structures. Professor Alan Weimer at the University of Colorado is partnering with ALD NanoSolutions and CoorsTek to develop an enabling production process for the next generation of advanced 3-D ceramics for use in additive manufacturing. The program will use Particle ALDTM to coat sintering additives directly onto fine ceramic particles and optimize the […]
ALD NanoSolutions and the University of Colorado are granted European Patent Covering Atomic Layer Deposition onto Polymers
DENVER, COLORADO — (Sept. 9, 2014) – ALD NanoSolutions (ALDN), a nanomaterials development company using the platform Polymer ALD™ technology to develop novel barrier films has exclusively licensed technology from the University of Colorado. The newly issued European patent expands the proprietary technology to create ultra-thin flexible ultrabarriers and other important surface functionalization on polymers.
