Ilika Technologies invents, tests and selects materials in the laboratory that can be selected for scale-up and everyday commercial use. Ilika’s unique process is far quicker and more efficient than traditional materials discovery processes. Ilika uses rapid, high throughput, or combinatorial, techniques which involve the rapid synthesis of a large number of different structurally related materials in a few automated steps.
Ilika focuses on two sectors:
· Energy, where Ilika assesses materials for their greater capacity for energy storage and conversion efficiency, for example: all solid state or thin-film-based batteries, fuel cell electro catalysts.
· Electronics, where materials created by Ilika rapidly improve the performance and efficiency of a range of electronic components, such as digital memory devices and sensors.
Ilika’s proposition is all about speed and efficiency: speed of materials discovery, enabling rapid commercialization and efficient production. Ilika is involved in the development of materials for large, global markets addressing clear society needs.
