Nanofabrication technology developer Atlant 3D Holding IVS (Copenhagen, Denmark) has raised US$15 million in a Series A round of funding.

Atlant 3D, founded in 2018, has developed microfluidic chemical reactor that can be used with a micronozzle on a moving platform to perform selective area direct atomic layer processing.

The funding round was led by West Hill Capital and supported by existing investors including an unnamed Japanese corporation. Atlant lists Sony, STMicroelectronics and Merck among its partner organizations.

The funding will be used for further R&D work aimed at creating a network-centric smart advanced manufacturing infrastructure based on its proprietary technology and integration with established manufacturing technologies.

Atlant 3D said it wants to create a network of manufacturing hubs – the A-hubs – across the globe to enable next-generation micro and nanoelectronics prototyping and manufacturing.

The Nanofabricator system enables the application of AI to direct patterning on complex surfaces, a variety of substrates, on plain wafers, and textures with existing structures or devices, Atlant 3D said.

“Imagine that new advanced materials, devices, and applications that you use today for your smart life or for the industry can be manufactured in-house, with flexibility, and sustainability in mind. The process can be fully digital, cost-effective, and provide a possibility for rapid innovation with atomic precision,” said Maksym Plakhotnyuk, CEO and founder of ATLANT 3D, in a statement.
