ATLANT 3D Nanosystems Secures 15M USD Investments to Enable Atomic Layer Advanced Manufacturing for Electronics

Copenhagen September 12, 2022: ATLANT 3D Nanosystems (ATLANT 3D), today announced the closure of their capital raise of 15M USD. The round was led by UK venture capital firm West HillCapital and further supported by existing investors including a leading Japanese corporation. The funding is the largest joint Series A round in Denmark outside of life sciences and software.

The funding will be used to get one step closer to ATLANT 3D’s vision to create a network-centric smart advanced manufacturing infrastructure based on its proprietary technology and know-how and integrate it in the future with other advanced technologies. ATLANT 3D aims to develop a network of advanced manufacturing hubs – the A-hubs – across the globe to enable a radical innovation ecosystem for next-generation micro and nanoelectronics prototyping and manufacturing.

ATLANT 3D is the first and only company to crack the code for a radically new way of doing micro and nano processing. ATLANT 3D’sNanofabricator™ enables advanced manufacturing with AI solutions which allows direct patterning on complex surfaces, various substrate materials, plain wafers, and textures with existing structures or devices. ATLANT 3D technology has a unique configuration that allows atomically precise processing at micro and zero gravity. In general, it decreases the time and cost of processing from years and months to days, and gives unprecedented flexibility for material innovation, prototyping, and production of micro and nanodevices, replacing the previous cleanroom-based complex process flows.


“The existing process-intensive manufacturing method is a limiting factor in the future of electronics development. Due to its inflexibility, the current multi-step process is at the root of our current global supply chain crises, causing a shortage of electronics devices and bringing high barriers to innovation. “, says Dr. Maksym Plakhotnyuk, CEO and Founder of ATLANT 3D. “At ATLANT 3D, we have invented a unique technological platform that enables what was previously impossible. Imagine that new advanced materials, devices, and applications that you use today for your smart life or for the industry can be manufactured in-house, with flexibility, and sustainability in mind. The process can be fully digital, cost-effective, and provide a possibility for rapid innovation with atomic precision. The recently raised funding will enable us to continue the fast technology and product development and expand ATLANT 3D to the first international market.”

” We see a huge potential in ATLANT 3Ds' groundbreaking technology. We were impressed by the company’s grand vision and the way how ATLANT 3D technology is ready to disrupttodisrupt the conventional microfabrication approach” says Alan Richards, Partner, and Co-Founder of West Hill Capital.


ATLANT 3D is a Danish deep-tech company founded in 2018 developing a fundamentally different and innovative micro and nanofabrication platform technology that enables atomically precise advanced manufacturing of advanced materials and electronics with the vision to revolutionize electronics atom by atom. Since 2020ATLANT 3D secured a number of customers, leading global industrial companies and organizations, in space, semiconductor, and electronics industries.


Since 2014, West Hill Capital has arranged investment of $500 million into 40 early-stage high-growth companies in the UK and Denmark. In 2021, West Hill’sportfolio company Humio was acquired by USA Nasdaq-listed Crowdstrike Holdings for US$400 million, one of the largest Danish private company exits that year.b

Atomic layer 3D printing awarded with 3 million EUR funds by EU

European consortium led by FAU receives funding from the European Union in the 'Fast Track to Innovation' programme

The prospects of additive manufacturing (3D printing) as a versatile tool for prompt and inexpensive prototyping are extremely promising. This family of methods are set to make fabrication processes faster, more efficient in terms of the raw materials and energy required, and more flexible. However, additive manufacturing has not yet been broadly applied to micro and nanotechnology. Lithography, as the methods used for structuring in microelectronics are called collectively, is based on the repetition of complex multistep procedures in each of which a so-called "resist" that serves as a template is applied and later removed. Not only is current lithography slow, it also wastes materials and energy, is poorly adapted to combining a large number of distinct materials, and extremely costly in terms of capital expenses.

A team of scientists and engineers led by Prof. Julien Bachmann from FAU plan to combine the expertise of the various consortium partners in the chemical control of ultrathin coatings ("atomic layer deposition"), in gas delivery, microelectromechanical devices, and microprocessing and automation, in order to demonstrate the potential of "atomic-layer 3D printing", that is, the generation of arbitrary shapes with a vertical resolution in the order of one atom (or a tenth of one nanometer).

The consortium includes the companies ATLANT 3D Nanosystems, Femtika, and SEMPA Systems as well as the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and FAU, and will be funded by approximately 3 million euros over a period of two years in the framework of the European Union's "Fast Track to Innovation" programme. The goal of the project is to design, build and test an industrial prototype of the atomic-layer 3D printer that can then be sold commercially.

ATLANT3D demonstrate high precision ALD printing

ATLANT3D report that they have completed successfully testing of their atomic printing system and could print first simple geometries and patterns. ATLANT3D technology relies on selective area direct atomic layer deposition process and enables direct pattern generation with atomic precision at 20 nm and 100-400 micrometer lateral resolution. 

Next chance to meet ATLANT3D will be at EFDS ALD for Industry 2020 in Freiburg April 1, 2020 (LINK) where CEO & Founder Dr. Maksym Plakhotnyuk will present "Direct atomic pattern printing"
