The ALD thin-film technology is revolutionizing the healthcare sector with their lithium-ion thin-film battery materials.
FREMONT, CA: It can be challenging to understand the surface properties of the biomedical devices and implants that are within the human bodies to make sure they are secure to use and in an operational condition for a more extended period.
Picosun Group, a Finnish company, has revolutionized the healthcare industry with its ALD thin-film technology. The company is a provider of ALD thin-film coating technology used in the fabrication of LEDs, watch parts, sensors, and many more. Dr. Jani Kivioja, CTO of Picosun Group, said, “3D object coating is one of our specialties, and we have been implementing it for years in various industries. Now, we have a strong team that provides the solutions to the medical segment as well,”
The company recognizes the uses of implants and influences their Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) technology to manufacture biocompatible and bioactive coatings that can accomplish the necessities of the healthcare sector. The ALD technology functionalizes with the surfaces of medical devices and implants to make sure that they are effectively working in the human body for a longer span.
Furthermore, Picosun Group has also reported about the outstanding results that they have achieved with the ALD while manufacturing lithium-ion thin-film battery materials. The solid-state of Li-ion thin-film batteries (SSLIBs) are small in structure and have flexible construction. The cell does not contain any aggressive liquid substance making it harmless. Moreover, the SSLIBs also have incredible energy storage capacity. That is why they are considered as the ideal power sources for laptops, wireless sensors, electric cars, implantable and wearable medical devices, and also for harvesting devices for renewable energy sources.
Dr. Jani Kivioja, added, “Battery applications are yet one example of ALD’s flexibility as a method, and how new industries discover the possibilities of ALD day by day. Deep trenches with aspect ratios exceeding 1:2500 have been successfully coated with our ALD tools equipped with our patented Picoflow™ feature, which further advocates the use of our technology in 3D solid-state Li-ion battery manufacturing. We are happy that our ALD solutions can be potentially utilized in future’s energy storage solutions in conjunction with clean energy production, and to power more compact healthcare devices, to improve people’s quality of life.”
