  • Materials by Design: A driver for competitive advantage

At Liten, we carry out targeted R&D to improve the performance of materials used in energy and organic electronics applications. Our researchers develop novel solutions when no standard materials are available for a specific need or to mitigate future supply issues such as cost concerns, geopolitical instability or regulatory changes that are plaguing materials such as rare earth materials indium, gallium lead and solvents. We leverage multi-material systems capable of meeting complex specifications along with nanostructuring techniques able to significantly change material’s properties like its melting point and the nature and kinetics of associated chemical reactions. A subtle change at the molecular level of a raw material can sometimes have an exponential impact on an industrial process or the end-user experience of a finished product. In this sense, the development of novel, customized and highly functional materials can be seen as a key driver of competitive advantage for industry.
