Smoltek Hydrogen has placed an order for the design and engineering of a Prototype Coater for industrial growth of carbon nanostructures. The purpose is to verify that the nanostructures can be grown using the equipment from AGC Plasma Technology Solutions that has been selected for future mass production – a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) tool that can be configured for substrates of several square meters.
Smoltek Hydrogen attended the 244th ECS event in Gothenburg, October 8-12. This was a perfect venue to introduce our new material for electrolyzers to potential customers. The message was that now we are ready to engage in product development projects with electrolyzer companies.
Advanced nano- and microelectronics are at the core of tomorrow’s hardware engineering. At Smoltek we are pioneering carbon nanotechnology that enables manufacturing of the next-generation solutions for the semiconductor industry. Currently the focus is on a new type of carbon nanofiber-based capacitor that fits in the extremely miniaturized packaging architectures being developed by chip manufacturers.
Smoltek Semi has developed a process for manufacturing of engineering samples in high volumes. This process will now be tested for production of CNF-MIM engineering samples in high volumes, as the first trial-run of capacitor prototypes (without the patent protected carbon nanofibers) was successful.
Efficient use of iridium can boost green hydrogen production in this decade and Smoltek Hydrogen wants to seize the opportunity by offering a nanostructured porous transport electrode that reduces cost and optimizes use of the critical anode catalyst in PEM electrolysis cells.
Smoltek has been awarded yet another patent in our patent family for Interposers, protecting solutions based on the CNF-MIM capacitor technology. The patent has been granted in India, bringing our patent portfolio to 82 granted patents globally.
Philip Lessner, CTO at YAGEO Group says in an interview that he and Yageo sees a lot of potential in Smotek's disruptive CNF-MIM capacitor technology for making capacitors in extremely small form factors.
Smoltek has yet another patent granted. This time in India, and it is related to the Assembly platform patent family in the direction of interconnects. This also makes our patent portfolio to now comprise 81 granted patents.
The WISE Welcome meeting is a welcoming of Wallenberg fellows and project leaders.
There are also industrial partners of various projects to join the meeting. Smoltek Hydrogen/Chalmers will be presenting proposed work on strategy and targets with Low Ir loaded catalysts for PEMWE with smoltek CNF technology.
We are pleased to announce that from today Sankar Sasidharan, PhD, has joined Smoltek, thanks to a prestigious industrial postdoc grant from WISE - Wallenberg Initiative for Sustainable Material Science.
Smoltek can grow extremely thin carbon nanofibers in various three-dimensional structures that multiply the addressable surface that can be coated with different materials. By doing so, we enable the manufacturing of materials and components that make applications such as products, components and devices better – much thinner, more powerful, more energy-efficient and/or a lot cheaper to produce.
Håkan Persson, CEO of Smoltek explains the potential in Smotek's disruptive carbon nanofiber technology and what the company's strategy looks like for the commercialization of it. Both in terms of the development of ultra-thin capacitors for application processors and a new cell material for Electrolyzers.
Smoltek is awarded a new patent – the first one of a new patent family called Discrete CNF-MIM. This innovation discloses a discrete capacitor component based on our CNF-MIM technology. This also brings our IP portfolio now to comprise 79 granted patents.
The Discrete CNF-MIM patent family is covering a method for manufacturing of discrete capacitor components based on our CNF-MIM technology. The innovation exploits the extra-ordinary surface to volume ratio provided by carbon nanofibers to create a MIM capacitor with unparalleled high capacitance density.
Today we have inaugurated the new in-house hydrogen laboratory. In these facilities equipped with advanced instruments and tools the R&D team can carry out performance measurement and long-term tests of electrolyzer cells, and will also be able to manufacture test cells.
Smoltek Hydrogen is attending the 244th ECS Meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden. The event brings together the most active researchers in academia, government, and industry to engage, discuss, and innovate in the areas of electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies.
Philip Lessner, EVP & CTO at YAGEO Group explains why he and Yageo sees a lot of potential in Smotek's disruptive carbon nanofiber technology for capacitors and how the CNF-MIM-technology can roll out a wide range of ultra-thin capacitors that fit very well with the new semiconductor segments Yageo is targeting.
Smoltek has achieved very successful test results of the company's disruptive cell material for PEM electrolysers. Prototypes with only 0.5 mg of iridium per square centimeter produce as much hydrogen as a standard material with 2.5 mg of iridium per square centimeter.
Louise Duker, Chief Product Officer at Smoltek, talks about how Smoltek will take the company's technology concept from manufacturing in a laboratory environment to industrial production in a factory - and how the company's product range of ultra-thin capacitors will be developed.
Smoltek Hydrogen has appointed Shafiq Kabir as Head of Volume Processes. Shafiq is the founder of Smoltek and he methodically created the company's technology platform and patent portfolio until January 2021, when he took a break from the nanotechnology industry for pursuing an Executive MBA-program.
