Company Summary

3D-Oxides has developed a unique additive thin film deposition technique. The main strengths are single step deposition of complex (multi-functional, smart, 3D-shaped, multi-element) oxide thin films on large substrates with a direct in-situ patterning during the film growth. We are today targeting to launch our first product consisting in a multitask tag for the internet of things with traceability, anti-forgery, authentication and cryptography.
