ALD NanoSolutions is the first company to carry out ALD on particle surfaces and on polymer surfaces

Accordng to recently updated information on ALD NanoSolutions web : ALD NanoSolutions is the first company to carry out atomic layer deposition on particle surfaces and on polymer surfaces (also includes non-particle surfaces).
ALD NanoSolutions manufactures Fluidized and rotating beds ALD reactors and technology through licensing agreements: "Fluidized and rotating beds have distinct advantages with respect to ALD processing. The FBX offers the well characterized fluidized bed processing vessel; widely used, easy scaled, and excellent for thermal ALD. The RX uses a rotating bed style, which allows for easier loading and unloading, static dosing, glove box loading, and optional plasma processing. Both reactor styles are benchmark designs used for years to produce state of the art coated materials." []
Because of this innovation, the U.S. and foreign patent offices have issued broad process and composition of matter patent claims for ALD on particles and polymers, including more than 100 related claims. ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. has exclusive rights to practice and to license the technology covered by the following patents:
