FirstNano® is CVD Equipment Corporation's research and development (R&D) brand of products. Various academic research centers, industry leaders, and government research labs worldwide have purchased the system and are employing it currently in their research.
Amprius’ immediate goals include commercialization of silicon-based anode materials with 10 times the capacity of current carbon anodes, offering an increase in cell capacity of roughly 40%.
Amprius, Inc., is working to develop a unique, high-throughput, continuous manufacturing process for producing a novel, nanostructured silicon-based anode material for lithium batteries. Higher energy density batteries would have a major impact on the development of electric vehicles by extending driving range and lowering costs.
