CLICK reduces costs of making thin films

The CLICK process is not capital-intensive, and enables deposition of uniform, optically pure coatings at ambient temperature and pressure. This allows CLICK to offer substantial reductions in manufacturing costs.

We are able to synthesize and test a large compositional space more quickly than any other deposition method. Our approach enables us to find the optimal formulation for our customers over a period of months rather than years and decades.
Our films have been proven to perform better than those made by other methods. These performance enhancements are rooted in our ability to make films that are not subject to extreme conditions, as well as our ability to make mixed-metal combinations that are inaccessible by conventional techniques.
We are able to Click every metal in the periodic table together. There is no other known method capable of accessing high quality films with such a diverse range of compositions.
Our room-temperature deposition process is amenable to the coating of various types of supports, including various types of metals, glass and plastics.

Optical quality films with precise compositional control, without a clean room

  • CLICK makes metal oxide films at moderate temperatures in the absence of vacuum.
  • The process offers an alternative to chemical vapor deposition (CVD), atomic layer deposition (ALD), physical vapor deposition (e.g., sputtering), and thermal decomposition.
  • High fidelity films can be made with film thicknesses from 10 nm up to several microns.
  • The process is proven to be the most versatile method known for controlling metal composition in thin films.
  • The method can be applied to batch and rapid throughput manufacturing.

An example of what we make: Electrochromic windows

Electrochromic windows can be transparent or tinted in response to an electrical current. Electrical charge is managed through a series of layers made up of metal oxide films. CLICK can make each layer of these films with high quality and fidelity, without a clean room.
