Project description:

Template tailored self-assembly is a method that bridges lithography defined positional accuracy of well-defined arrays of obstacles with the unprecedented throughput of the self-assembly deposition process enabling the origination of ideal two-dimensional nanoparticle arrays. The project “NanoAssembly” project was aiming to commercialize the technology for the formation of micro and nano-sized surface structures via controlled self-assembly originally developed by KTU researchers.

Project funding:

This research project is funded under the 2014–2020 Operational Programme for the European Union Funds’ Investments under measure No. 01.2.2-MITA-K-702 “Promoting the Commercialization and Internationalization of R&D Results”

Project results:

A start-up company UAB “Nanoversa” was established for the commercialization of scientific results. While carrying out the project three nanotechnology products were developed, namely monodisperse nanoparticle colloids of controlled nanoparticle sizes; wavelength tailored surface-enhanced Raman scattering substrates, a capillary deposition device, and its control software for micro/nanoparticle self-assembly into templates with appropriate sized surface obstacles.

Period of project implementation: 2020-09-03 - 2021-11-30

Project coordinator: Kaunas University of Technology
