CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV), a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced that it has received a CVD/ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) system order from Georgia Institute of Technology. This system will be used to coat powders with high performance nanomaterials for electric vehicle (EV) battery applications.
CVD Equipment plans to design and manufacture the system as a standard product platform to coat powders for Research and Development (R&D) which can be scaled for pilot production. This system features a tumbling bed to coat powders uniformly and will have the capability of both chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD) processes. ALD is a thin film deposition process that allows for atomic layer thickness resolution, excellent conformity of high aspect ratio surfaces, and pinhole-free layers. This is achieved by the sequential formation of atomic layers in a self-limiting reaction.
As EV battery technology moves from R&D to production, CVD Equipment Corporation is well positioned to support its customers with turnkey equipment solutions enabling cost effective manufacturing of EV electrode materials. Coating powders with carbon, silicon nanowires, and emerging nanomaterials provide opportunities to improve battery performance and decrease costs per kWh.
“CVD is pleased to receive this order and we are excited to have been awarded this order as we continue to focus on growing our market presence in the lithium-ion battery and electric vehicle emerging markets,” said Emmanuel Lakios, President and CEO of CVD Equipment Corporation.
