SmolGROW

Core technology of controlled growth

SmolGROW™ is Smoltek’s core technology which enables us to engineer nanostructures on a substrate in a controlled way and with the flexibility to define and tailor the properties of the grown nanostructure exactly how we desire. 

SmolGrow™ is our patented core technology to grow carbon nanotructures on a substrate.  The technology enables us to engineer the characteristics of the carbon nanostructures, how closely they are grown, what length or shape they should have, the patterns in which they will grow, etc. The carbon nanostructures can be grown in accordance with defined specifications entirely depending on what properties you want. 

SmolGROW benefits
Enables controlled growth of nanostructures on a substrate (silicon, metal, semiconductor, insulator etc) with the flexibility to define and tailor/engineer the properties of the nanostructures. The technology is suitable for generic growth/ engineering processes of nanostructures.
