It is an important milestone to be able to increase our footprint on core patent portfolio on growth methods for growing nanostructures. “Japan is known for its high tech environment and is an important market for Smoltek´s technology both from manufacturing and market point of view.” Says Dr. M. Shafiq Kabir, Smoltek´s CIO.
The current Japan patent covers an aspect of essential growth related method to enable growing nanostructures on any substrate that is sensitive to plasma environment to enable to grow e.g. carbon nanotubes, nanofibers, nanowires etc. without destroying the substrate underneath.
Smoltek’s patent portfolio now globally comprises 47 granted patents.
