See every atom | Design breakthrough materials

Introducing the Atom Microscope by Projection.

For the first time, every atom in a material can be imaged -- 3D position and element identity.
Seeing every atom is seeing a material's 'DNA', and it presents an opportunity: sequence it, decode it, redisigned it.

ÅTOMNAUT provides imaging, analysis and design services.
Example materials:
- silicon transistors
- high-strength steels
- nanowires
- quantum dots
- tungsten alloys for fusion or aerospace
- nanostructured light & strong aluminum alloys

Sequence

Every atom. The 3D position and element identity. The 'DNA' of a material.

Decode

Quantifying structure and chemistry, deciphering how they control properties (strength, superconductivity..).

Design

Computer design of patentable materials and manufacturing processes from sequenced data.

"We are rapidly approaching the point at which a few atoms out of place can ruin a device."

World's highest resolution
3D microscope

100x resolution improvement.

3D xyz resolution for:
- conventional atom probe: 0.2*0.2*0.06 = 0.0024 nm3
- new atom microscope: 0.03*0.03*0.03 = 0.000027 nm3

Next generation materials engineering begins with a next generation microscope.
