Academic Tool Survey
0:00:01 Hi and welcome to the final talk of the P A l D summit. My name Stacy Molten. I'm the 0:00:08 applications engineer for business development at Forge Nano. I was also the program director for 0:00:14 the P A L D Summit. I really appreciate all of the time that our speakers volunteered to give their 0:00:21 talks and be here for the live chat as well as to all of our sponsors and our poster offers. We've 0:00:30 really appreciated your time. We didn't know this event was gonna take off like it did, but we were 0:00:34 so excited. Today I'm going to talk to you a little bit about academic R and D and I want to engage 0:00:43 the academic community and what your needs are for particles. How likely your deposition and we want 0:00:50 to help you afford Nano. Figure out where the next opportunities are for this industry. 0:00:59 I want to give you a brief background about myself. Uh, my PhD is in Atomic Layer. Deposition from 0:01:07 the University of Colorado at Boulder was with Al Weimer. My application was in ca Tallis iss using 0:01:17 atomic layer Deposition of cobalt for the reaction of Fisher tropes, Emphasis which has over 100 0:01:25 years of background research in that field, and what we were able to show is that there was a three 0:01:34 times higher efficiency in COBOL usage, using a an ale de catalyst rather than incipient wetness, 0:01:43 catalysts or anything in the past 100 years of research. So that is one of the reasons why I am so 0:01:53 excited about the field of particle ale de because I know from my own experience that there is a lot 0:02:01 of opportunity out there if you're looking for it, which is why we're wanting to work with the 0:02:07 academic community. So out forged Nano. I work on determining commercial viability of opportunities 0:02:15 that come through our door. I also do education and outreach for particle ale de, I might already 0:02:23 said. I have my PhD. I also have my M B A from the University of Colorado in Denver. A swells. My 0:02:31 undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from Oregon State 0:02:37 I titled this Academic R and D needs, and looking to the future of P A L D for advanced materials 0:02:45 were looking to do in this talk is to engage academic researchers on what you're tooling means are 0:02:52 to get the best to research out of your labs. 0:02:57 I have nearly 50 colleagues at Forge Nano who are experts in Particle A. L. D. How to develop those 0:03:05 technologies and how to scale them. So we're certain that we could be a helpful partner to the 0:03:12 academic community to ensure that what research your developing can come out of your lab, come into 0:03:20 our facility later to be commercialized through our scale up processes. You're in Colorado and then 0:03:27 enter the world on the commercial market. 0:03:32 Bolic D already showed this slide in his keynote presentation. But at Forged Nano, we really do 0:03:39 believe that surface engineering of powders with that surface coating the particle atomic layer 0:03:45 deposition is a key to making innovative materials. We're hoping that academics will continue to 0:03:53 leave, be working in new application areas for particle ale de and finding out what else is out 0:03:59 there that can be improved on. 0:04:04 We show this application space to show where we've worked in at Fortune ano for different market 0:04:10 opportunities. But don't let this limit you. There are many opportunities out there for surface 0:04:18 coatings by changing the surface properties, so continue to look for those next opportunities 0:04:25 outside of these applications faces. 0:04:31 My goal today is to engage the academic community in a focus group with Forge Nano's engineers to 0:04:40 design help Design a tool for your needs in your research labs. What are the most important 0:04:48 chemistries to you? What size of samples are the most important to you and where are you looking? 0:04:57 Teoh? Use these samples in what applications we would like to design. These are tools from a 0:05:03 specifically an academic tool that can be used in your labs that is meant for particles. That's a 0:05:10 major point that should be known in this field, that the difference between using a way for a lady 0:05:17 tool and a particle A L D tool is a major. You must be using a specifically particle ale de tool to 0:05:26 get that deposition on the surface area and get the flow of precursor that you need to get uniformed 0:05:34 coatings on all of the powder. So we want toe. Encourage the academic community to sign up for a 0:05:42 focus group that will be held after the p A. L. The summit and fill out the questionnaire form that 0:05:48 we have on this page today to help us start to learn what you need most. 0:05:57 You may have already heard about our Prometheus tool, which is a lab scale fluid eyes bed, 0:06:03 deposition tool that could produce samples of milligrams up two kilograms. And we have been sewing 0:06:10 that tool to other research labs to develop their own technologies in their lab, which then you can 0:06:16 come back with that technology to forge Nano and we can help you scale up now with our merger with a 0:06:25 Lady Nano Solutions. We have several different methods of scaling, including semi continuous, 0:06:32 continuous and batch systems. So depending on what your application area is, it fits into one of 0:06:38 these, um, tools. So what we're looking to do with our focus group with the academic a community is 0:06:48 to design a different tool rather than Prometheus but a specific academic tool. It will likely be a 0:06:54 rotary batch system, and we want to know a little bit more about what your needs are for our 0:07:02 engineers to design that tool specific for your needs and what chemistries you're looking at. So 0:07:07 we'd like you to sign up to participate in our focus group with our engineers give us some feedback 0:07:15 about what it is that we think you need and you tell us what you actually need. 0:07:24 So during the focus group, you'll be engaging with myself as well as John Mahoney, who works in our 0:07:32 team with are selling our tools to the large industries or down to academics, making sure that you 0:07:40 have the right tool for what your needs are. Um, along with John, you'll also be working with our 0:07:46 engineering team and answering questions to help us help you. I hope you decide to participate in 0:07:53 this event, and we look forward to engaging with you. Thank you so much.
