Green Car Congress: BASF New Business acquires thin film company Deutsche Nanoschicht; high-temperature superconductors

Jun 14, 2013

BASF New Business acquires thin film company Deutsche Nanoschicht; high-temperature superconductors 6 June 2013 BASF New Business GmbH has acquired all shares of the technology company Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH . Deutsche Nanoschicht has developed an innovative process for producing thin films by means of chemical solution deposition.This process allows high-temperature superconductors to be manufactured in a much more efficient and resource-conserving manner. Superconductors carry current virtually without loss, so they allow potentially huge savings in generating and transporting electricity. Superconductor technology is of interest particularly in the fields of generators and motors as well as power grids in urban areas. As their current carrying capacity is high compared to copper, extremely compact and lightweight systems become an option in electrical engineering. Furthermore, the process Deutsche Nanoschicht has developed is also interesting when it comes to manufacturing thin layers of a broad range of materials. Such thin layers, key elements in many electrical components, can be produced in a more energy-efficient manner to feature improved properties. The main challenge in depositing high-performance electro-ceramic layers is their anisotropy (having a physical property that has a different value when measured in different directions), Deutsche Nanoschicht says. Anisotropy occurs when physical properties depend on the crystallographic orientation of the material in the layer. In a layer, all crystals or grains have to be orientated for optimum features. This is achieved by an epitaxial growth of the ceramic layers. Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH has demonstrated its ability to grow epitaxially a variety of material in a unique chemical solution deposition process, such as titanated, zirconates, manganates, cerates and cuprates. Combined with the strength and experience of BASF’s research, chemical solution deposition may form the basis for developing new system solutions for energy technology and electronics. BASF and Deutsche Nanoschicht are working together to bring the innovative technology to market. For BASF, the acquisition of Deutsche Nanoschicht is a major step forward in developing our E-Power Management growth field. Access to this innovative technology will enable us to further strengthen our position in the energy and resources growth market —Dr. Stefan Blank, Managing Director of BASF New Business BASF’s E-Power Management growth field comprises technology developments, materials and solutions for the entire electricity value chain. It focuses on resource-conserving and efficient electricity generation, transmission, storage and the efficient use of electrical energy. Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH was founded by Dr. Michael Bäcker in Rheinbach, Germany, on 24 November 2011 and started operations on 1 January 2012.
