Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the DARPA for “Flexible Gas Diffusion Barriers Using ALD/MLD Multilayers and Roll-to-Roll Processing.” The award will be used to develop flexible hybrid inorganic/ polymer multilayer gas diffusion barriers using atomic layer deposition (ALD) and molecular layer deposition (MLD). These multilayer barriers should produce unprecedented flexible barrier performance, enabling next generation technology in flexible organic light emitting diodes (FOLEDs) and thin film photovoltaics.
The failure of flexible organic electronic devices occurs because air and moisture can easily permeate through the polymer substrates that support the devices. These oxidants can degrade light-emitting organics and/or lead to the oxidation of metal ca- thodes. Unfortunately, single inorganic films depo- sited onto polymers using sputtering or evaporation do not provide adequate gas diffusion barriers for FOLEDs and various other flexible electronic devices. To minimize permeation, Polymer ALD™ creates transparent inorganic thin ALD films on polymers and

provides a gas diffusion barrier. Multilayer films con- sisting of separate flexible individual inorganic and organic layers can be employed to obtain extremely low, ultra-barrier performance.
“In order to realize the promise of novel electronics and thin film photovoltaics , ultra-barrier ALD coa- tings are needed to protect them. Nano-engineered barriers will address not only lifespan and perfor- mance issues, but also offer flexibility in order to develop innovative new products” said Dr. Karen Buechler, President and CTO of ALD NanoSolutions.
to act as its Principal American Liaison (PAL) for the company’s securities to trade on the OTCQX market- place in the United States. Initially, Merriman will advise on the creation of American Depositary Re- ceipts (ADRs) representing the company’s securities to trade on OTCQX and on the selection of an ADR provider and Level 1 program. It is envisaged that the process of completing the formalities to trade on OTCQX will take approximately 8 to 12 weeks, subject to OTC Markets Group approval.In addition, Alexium has appointed Standard and Poor’s (S&P) to record information on the company in S&P’s reco- gnized Securities Manual enabling blue sky securities trading compliance of Alexium securities in a majori- ty of the United States.
