What Are Nanocoatings?

A nanocoating is the sealing of a material at the atomic level through methods such as atomic layer deposition (ALD). The term nanocoating refers to the coating itself (e.g. a nanocoating on the surface of ‘x’ substrate) or it can refer to the process itself (e.g. …by nanocoating the surface with …). A nanocoating is [...]

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and its Applications

Atomic layer deposition (ALD), is a common method to precisely control the growth of materials and fabricate thin films on a substrate- i.e. the formation of a coating. ALD is a vapor phase technique and the process of formation utilizes a layer-by-layer (LbL) method to grow and build the film using a bottom-up nucleation-growth approach. [...]

The Benefits of Using Particle ALD

Atomic layer deposition (ALD), in its various forms, is a way of coating a substrate with a thin film using a layer-by-layer (LbL) bottom-up approach. Whilst many of the substrates are larger surfaces, such as electrodes, it is also possible to coat nanoparticles using this route. This is referred to as particle atomic layer deposition, [...]

An Introduction to Particle ALD

Particle ALD is the use of Atomic Layer Deposition to coat individual particles as small as sub-micron diameters. ALD provides conformal coatings on particles (making what are sometimes referred to as nano-M&M’s®). The first reported occurrence of this was documented in the 1960’s, but since deeper exploratory research from Finland throughout the 1990’s it has [...]
