ALD NanoSolutions Awarded patent/grant
September 20, 2005
Exclusively licensed to ALD NanoSolutions, Inc., the University of Colorado has been awarded U.S. Patent number 6,913,827 “Nanocoated primary particles and method for their manufacture,” which has been exclusively licensed to ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. The patent includes composition of matter and process claims on nanocoated micron and submicron particles. Three patents covering the platform Particle ALDTM coating technology have been issued.
Previous patents issued are: U.S. Patent 6,613,383 entitled: “Atomic Layer Controlled Deposition on Particle Surfaces;” and U.S. Patent 6,713,177 entitled “Insulating and Functionalizing Fine Metal Particles with Conformal Ultrathin Films.”
U.S. Patent Application No. 60/306,521 entitled “Method for the Deposition of an Inorganic Film on an Organic Polymer Surface Using Atomic Layer Deposition Techniques” is pending.
ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. also announced the award of a $100,000 Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant from the National Science Foundation for "Improved Boron Nitride Materials for Enhanced Thermal Management." These funds will be used to begin the development of selectively coating the basal planes of BN particles with ultrathin Al2O3 films, as well as to prove the scalability of the production process.
This research, done in partnership with the George and Weimer Laboratories at the University of Colorado - Boulder, is an important part in the company’s continuing effort to prove the flexibility of atomic layer deposition in the custom designing of composite particles.
About ALD NanoSolutions:
ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. was founded in 2002 by P. Michael Masterson, Dr. Karen Buechler, and University of Colorado Professors Dr. Steven George and Dr. Alan Weimer. The company's proprietary technology is based on atomic layer deposition (ALD) coating chemistry and fluidized bed processing methods developed by Dr. George and Dr. Weimer for depositing ultrathin films on particulate and polymeric surfaces. The company is focused on commercializing its nanocoating processes, called Particle ALDTM and Polymer ALDTM, and is targeting collaborative research agreements with domain partners for the discovery and validation of innovative composite materials in selected industries. Particle ALDTM has been named one of R & D magazine's top 100 innovations for 2004.
