Smoltek patent No. 63 now granted

Smoltek has yet anoth­er patent grant­ed. This time in India. The patent is relat­ed to the growth process of nanos­truc­tures and it makes the Cat­a­lyst dif­fu­sion patent fam­i­ly complete.

Smoltek’s 63rd patent has been grant­ed in India and relates to the core tech­nol­o­gy of grow­ing car­bon nanos­truc­tures. It also com­pletes the patent fam­i­ly for Cat­a­lyst dif­fu­sion which now con­tain eight (8) grant­ed patents worldwide.

“With this patent grant­ed, our fun­da­men­tal growth-relat­ed patent port­fo­lio is now com­plete with a world­wide foot­print. This enables us to focus on the next stage of patent port­fo­lio devel­op­ment”, says Dr Shafiq Kabir, Founder and Chief Inno­va­tion Offi­cer at Smoltek.

Cat­a­lyst dif­fu­sion fam­i­ly is one of the patent fam­i­lies that cov­ers an aspect of a method for man­u­fac­tur­ing nanos­truc­tures on a giv­en sub­strate. The pro­tect­ed method cov­ers the con­cepts of stack­ing essen­tial thin film mate­ri­als in dif­fer­ent con­fig­u­ra­tions to facil­i­tate grow­ing nanos­truc­ture on a sub­strate once sub­ject­ed to suit­able CVD gas environment.

Smoltek’s patent port­fo­lio now glob­al­ly com­pris­es 63 grant­ed patents. Read more about our IP and patents.
