Affilation: VersuFLEX Technologies LLC, United States

Pages: 474 - 477

Keywords: nanocoating, monolayers, self-assembled monolayers, ultra-thin film coating, fluidic self-assembly, directed self-assembly, highly uniform thin film coating

A novel, practical fluidic method is presented for coating ultra-thin, ultra-uniform layers and realizing self-assembled monolayers of particles, into nanoscale in atmosphere and room temperature at rates scalable to web processes at >4 m/min. A prototype machine is shown and a wide variety of deposited materials reviewed, including ultra-thin polymer films, and a variety of micro- and nano-particles.
