Lund University Holding invests in newly started AlixLabs

LU Holding invests in newly started AlixLabs, which have developed a method to manufacture electronic circuits for the semiconductor industry in a very cost-effective way.

Researchers from NanoLund have developed and patented the method and all three, Jonas Sundqvist, Dmitry Suyatin, and Sabbir Kahn, are part of the newly started company (AlixLabs AB), and Co-founder Stefan Svedberg joins as CEO. Svedberg was previously Director of Corporate Development at Ericsson.

Displaying the Edge Effect: This is a new method of nanostructure fabrication using the atomic layer etching process, which is inherently a damage-free etch process. The recently discovered etching process selectivity to inclined surfaces, can be used as a mask and in this way walls of tapered structures. The inclined surfaces can be readily fabricated by e.g. dry etching or epitaxial growth, and will provide masking during the atomic layer etching process. This process therefore provides access to fabrication of extremely small structures in a very precise and efficient way.

Electronic circuits are needed in all types of hardware, but the cost of producing them has increased as the electronics become smaller. With the AlixLab method, which is based on a recently identified physical phenomenon, the manufacturing process of the electronic circuits becomes both faster and significantly cheaper.

"AlixLabs has an exciting technology, and now we have a good team in place," says Erik Larsson, portfolio manager at LU Holding.

Alixlabs plans to implement an expanded proof of concept in 2020 as the basis for continued customer discussions.
