ALD Nanosolutions/Meaglow Development Partnership
THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO–(April 21, 2015) – ALD NanoSolutions and Meaglow are pleased to announce an exclusive partnership for the development and marketing of hollow cathode plasma sources uniquely suited for atomic layer deposition onto particles. An ALD NanoSolutions particle reactor combined with a Meaglow plasma source allows newly developed plasma ALD chemistries to be performed onto particles in appreciable quantities. This expanded capability enables development of new materials and their eventual commercialization.
“When you’re coating hundreds of grams of powder, ALD product gases significantly change the gas composition, requiring a robust remote plasma source,” says Joe Spencer, Director of Operations at ALD NanoSolutions. “The Meaglow hollow cathode plasma source strikes easily in a very wide pressure range that gives us a lot of versatility.”
“When I think of hi-tech materials, I think of ALD NanoSolutions, who I know to be doing some incredibly innovative things with
owders. Apart from being very robust, I think the Meaglow hollow cathode plasma source will bring the advantages of less plasma damage, higher growth per cycle, and minimized oxygen contamination for nitrides. We’re incredibly pleased to see our plasma source being mated to ALD NanoSolutions’ reactor systems,” says Scott Butcher, Chief Scientist of Meaglow Ltd.
About Meaglow Ltd.
