Durable Plasma Reactor Electrodes with Nanoceramic Coating.

In collaboration with University of Sheffield. Supported by Innovate UK.

Plasma processing is widespread for synthesis of high performance materials. For most common types of plasma reactors the electrodes must be robust and also of high tolerance of the uniformity of thickness of ceramic coating, particularly for multiplexed microreactors. The project explores the application of coating developed by Cambridge Nanolitic to achieve the necessary level of tolerance and durability, and will test the plasma reactor fidelity and performance on an exemplar application to produce ozone-rich microbubbles for “green” laundry cleaning and water sterilisation.

Multifunctional nanoceramic surfacing for Titanium implants.

In collaboration with University of Manchester. Supported by Innovate UK.

Project explores the technical feasibility of a novel nanoceramic surfacing for titanium implants developed by Cambridge Nanolitic to enhance their biocompatibility and osseointegration.

Cambridge Nanolitic provides Ti implants with nanoceramic surface to effectively combine the best features of metal implants such as high mechanical strength and formability with high biocompatibility, corrosion resistance and aesthetics of ceramics.

Nanostructured surface with self-assembled Nanocomposites

Cambridge Nanolitic developed an original technology based on controlled processes of self-assembly and self-organization of colloidal nano-components during the formation of their complexes with polyfunctional ligands in a bulk liquid phase for functionalisation of nanoceramic surfaces.
