Abstract:
Precision NanoCoating for NanoParticles

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.
