We created Prometheus to enable atomic layer deposition research. Research and development for ALD has never been easier. Our tools put ALD at your fingertips. Forge Nano has installed Prometheus in laboratories and universities all over the world.


Lab-scale research and development in ALD

Lab-scale Atomic Layer Deposition has never been more attainable. We designed Prometheus to help researchers accelerate their understanding of ALD. Prometheus is our lab-scale atomic layer deposition tool. We designed Prometheus with scaleability in mind. With multiple reactor sizes available, batch size is adjustable.

The Prometheus system accommodates up to 8 precursors, including basic delivery and low vapor pressure delivery draw systems to handle gas, liquid, and solid precursor recipes with ease.

Independently-heated zones throughout the system ensure optimal operating conditions for precursors and sensitive substrates.

Prometheus comes with multiple fluidization aids to ensure particles are adequately fluidized for uniform coatings. The vibrating fluidized bed reactor and high shear jet assist the negation of powder aggregation and improve mixing in the reactor. Highly controlled dosing is supported with high degrees of automation and automated process monitoring. The system is equipped with emergency stop logic to enable the ALD system to run continuously, safely, and autonomously. The user interface is also is intuitive and is easy to use for easy adoption. The Prometheus Series is the world’s most flexible ALD R&D tool, and it was engineered with the researcher in mind. It provides the most advanced hardware and software for control and in situ analysis of ALD coating in real-time.


Prometheus brought fire from the Gods to the masses. Forge Nano’s Prometheus R&D tool brings the power of particle ALD to the masses. The Prometheus Series represents a significant step forward for R&D into the application of sub-nano to nanoscale coatings on powders.

Forge Nano’s Prometheus Series has several available models and a suite of options to provide the right fit on technical capabilities while balancing the researcher’s budget. Corporate researchers, Government laboratories, and academic partners all stand to benefit from this novel, flexible ALD research tool, which was engineered to cover a wide range of research areas. Customers of Prometheus will have control over the speed, cost, and ownership of their IP efforts. Forge Nano also provides extensive scale up resources to translate your lab-scale innovations to high volume commercial markets.
