Thin Films with Self-Assembled Monolayers Embedded on their Surfaces
New Jersey Innovation Institute, NJ, United States
NJIT has invented a novel technique for the formation of thin films with self-assembled monolayers of particles embedded on their surfaces. These films can be coated onto the surface of materials to modify their mechanical, thermal, electrical, and optical properties. The technique is scalable and cost-effective.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The capabilities of NJIT's scalable and cost-effective technique are superior to that of the usual self-assembly method.
