Innovative HPC® platform ®: a fundamentally new approach
The Comberry, technology platform combining software with technological and analytical equipment, and HPC® technology (HPC® technology makes it possible to conduct dozens and even hundreds of experiments simultaneously, thereby discovering the most high-performing materials and their application methods) developed by Intermolecular, Inc. is capable of conducting hundreds of experiments simultaneously, the results are quickly studied with special analytical methods to determine the most promising materials and processes for fabrication of integrated devices. The platform ensures that scientific results from the labs are scalable for production.
Combinatorial technology in conjunction with a top-notch team of experts accelerates research cycles and increases their efficiency, which in turn contributes to cost efficient and seamless implementation of innovative solutions for mass production.
The Comberry combinatorial research platform is unparalleled in both Russian and European markets.
The Integrated R&D Platform combines combinatorial processing equipment with analytics and data management to significantly improve the efficiency of each stage in the R&D efforts around application of thin-film coatings via Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD), Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), as well as Liquid-Phase Deposition (LPD) methods. The Platform’s technological capabilities allow for a wide spectrum of research opportunities in the field of Materials Science of thin-film coatings and optimization of the existing technological processes.
The Integrated R&D Platform HPC® of Comberry includes the following modules:
The main technological facility is located in the laboratory of the ULNANOTECH Nanocenter (city of Ulyanovsk).
Comberry utilizes the infrastructure and competencies of the Dubna Nanocenter in electrochromic, hydrophobic and hydrophilic adhesive materials as well as the infrastructure of the Saransk Nanocenter in power electronics.
In February 2014 Comberry hosted an international distributed seminar ”Technologies and Applications of Transparent Conductive Oxides. Accelerated Development of Thin-film Devices.” As a result of the seminar an announcement was made to create the Consortium of Businesses committed to optimization of the ТСО, materials and properties, which are widely used for manufacturing glass, displays, light emitting devices (LEDs), photovoltaics, etc. changed. The Consortium brings together the resources and efforts of all participants to reduce the time and costs searching for innovative technology solutions.
The Consortium model offers the following advantages:
At the request of several Russian and foreign companies, Comberry has developed a portfolio of projects to be carried out within the Consortium.
Comberry invites all interested companies that use TCO in manufacturing to acquire rights to emerging technologies by joining the Consortium.
Comberry (Comberry, LLC), a Technology Company
Comberry was established, by the Nanocenters of Dubna, Ulyanovsk and Saransk jointly with Intermolecular Inc., in October 2013 Intermolecular, Inc.
- applied research in the field of multifunctional thin-film coatings for various materials.
Comberry mission: to provide innovative Russian companies with technological development capabilities, poised to allow them to become successful producers of high-tech products.
