January 5, 2010 ALD NanoSolutions is pleased to announce that the Japanese and Canadian patent offices have issued allowance on a critical patent application which covers performing atomic layer deposition (ALD) onto polymer surfaces and particles. This technology will prove to be very important in several industries including the development of highly flexible barrier films for OLEDs. Claims include the ability to perform ALD onto polymers including particles, parts, sheets and rolls. Allowed claims also cover the ability of putting multi-layers of coating onto polymers. This patent will be awarded to the University of Colorado at Boulder and is part of the technology exclusively licensed to ALD NanoSolutions. About ALD […]
November 24, 2009 ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. has announced the award of a $150,000 Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant from the Department of Energy for “Scale-up of the Nanomanufacturing of Coated Powders for Superior Battery Electrode Materials.” This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The award, effective December 7, 2009 – June 7 2010, will be used to develop nanoscale ceramic films on fine and ultrafine particles for use in battery electrodes, where electrode corrosion can be mitigated without detrimental effects to the electrical and ionic transport properties of the system. ALD provides an opportunity to deposit nano-scale films on primary […]
June 18, 2009 ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. has announced the award of a $150,000 Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant from the National Science Foundation for “Functionalized Nanocoatings for Filler Adhesion to Rubber Using Atomic Layer Deposition.” This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The award, effective July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010, will be used to develop performance advantages for tires, environmental benefits for tire fabrication and better fuel efficiency for cars . Nanometer coatings will provide better adhesion between light weight, high strength fillers, such as KevlarTM, and the rubber tire matrix. The patented process of depositing ALD films […]
May 1, 2009 ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. has announced that its proprietary ALD films are protecting polymer samples from the space environment on the International Space Station (ISS). Ultrathin protective barrier films grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) have already shown great promise in protecting sensitive polymers in laboratory experiments that simulate the space environment. This compelling protection is now being verified aboard the ISS. Polymer samples coated with thin multilayer metal oxide coatings deposited by ALD have been mounted on the exterior of the ISS. These samples are being exposed to the perils found in low Earth orbit, which include high velocity oxygen atom and high energy UV radiation. Data […]
