American Elements supplies a comprehensive range of materials to the electronics industry, including deposition materials, optical and semiconductor materials, rare earth elements and compounds, nanostructured materials, and ultra high purity/MBE-grade metals, alloys, and compounds. We can provide raw, refined, and precursor forms of almost any material used in electronics manufacturing, including dielectrics (including specialized high-k and low-k materials), metals, semiconductors, transparent conductive oxides, and protective coatings.

With years of experience meeting the needs of electronics manufacturers and designers, American Elements is sensitive to the special concerns unique to this industry. Our ISO 9001 certified production facilities guarantee quality and lot-to-lot consistency.

Innovation Case Study #8: American Elements Aids Intel in Creating a Novel Dielectric Coating

#8: American Elements Aids Intel in Creating a Novel Dielectric Coating

The Challenge

Intel researchers were exploring ways to further miniaturize the antennas used in mobile devices. One barrier to further minimization is the dielectric coating's ability to shorten the wavelength.

The Innovation

Intel turned to American Elements to produce an oxide-passivated cobalt nanoparticle that could be dispersed in an epoxy and coated on the antenna.

The Result

The results were reported in 2014 in the Journal of Electronic Materials in an article entitled “Cobalt-Polymer Nanocomposites for Miniaturized Antennas” which found that the new material “enhanced frequency stability” leading to further miniaturization.
