ATOMIC Receives $1.5M from NSF Funding

The Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings (ATOMIC) has received a grant from the National Science Foundation that will help them to further expand. This center brings together university, industry, and government partners to develop atom-thin 2D coatings with wide-ranging industrial applications.

ATOMIC was launched in 2015 and has 13 industry partners and five government partners. It is the only NSF center dedicated to the development of 2D coatings. They have won $1.5 million in Phase II funding which will allow them to add new academic partners – starting with Boise State University – and new industry partners. 

The research is focused on designing and developing 2D materials with unique physical, optical, electrical and chemical properties. Ranges in thickness vary from to a few atoms can enable new technologies to address corrosion, oxidation, abrasion resistance and more.

Are you developing new software for an existing application? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify). To find out more, please contact a Swanson Reed R&D Specialist today or check out our free online eligibility test.
