Svaya Nanotechnologies is revolutionizing surface engineering with an industrial scale molecular layer deposition (MLD) platform, based on Layer-by-Layer (LbL) self assembly, which has yielded performance advances in the fields of drug delivery, energy storage, extreme wettability and complex optics. Leveraging an efficient, self-limiting process which operates in an ambient environment (room temperature and pressure) using dilute, aqueous solutions, Svaya can rapidly deposit high uniformity films only achievable by vacuum processes today. Complex, multilayer thin films are assembled via electrostatic interactions over very large areas, at high throughput (15 linear meters/min), with precise control and uniformity. We will provide a technical background to the technology and discuss how Svaya is using it to solve critical problems in the display, architectural and automotive industries today, with such multilayer optical films as durable, high transmission antireflection films and multilayer non EM-interfering infrared reflecting films. We will highlight the details and features of the technology and also touch on how these capabilities are extensible to new markets and applications. By building off of known work from the LbL world and porting this technology onto Svaya’s MLD production platform, new opportunities will arise for functionalizing new surfaces to create performance textiles, improved energy generation systems and dynamic functional films.
