Irresistible Materials.

Developing advanced materials for a new generation of microchip technology.

Irresistible Materials (IM) develops novel materials that address the semiconductor industry’s need for ever-decreasing microchip feature sizes.

Building on over 10 years of research at the University of Birmingham UK, IM has developed a comprehensive intellectual property portfolio, including patents covering materials and processes for applications in next generation lithography.

Technology & Products.

Founded in 2010 by David Ure, Executive Director, as a spinout from the University of Birmingham, Irresistible Materials is advancing new photo-resist material which will allow the creation of smaller and lighter devices. Photo-resist is used to coat silicon chips before the features are etched on to them using ultraviolet light – a process known as lithography which creates the current equivalent of wires. IM has developed three advanced materials platforms for next generation lithography applications. These are:

  • Extreme Ultra-Violet (EUV) Photo-Resist materials
  • Spin-on-Carbon Hardmask materials
  • Electron-Beam (E-Beam) materials

Since launch, IM has developed an extensive patent portfolio covering innovative resist (EUV and E-beam) and hard-mask materials.

The Market.

To support ongoing technology development and the demonstration of the benefits of its materials, IM has built a strong team and alliance partner network. Key partners include the University of Birmingham and Nano-C Inc, a leading fullerene supplier based in Massachusetts, USA.

Nano-C is a leading developer of nanostructured carbon for use in energy and electronics applications. These materials include fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and their chemical derivatives. Nano-C looks to expand its markets by partnering with applications developers. Early-on Nano-C identified the University of Birmingham and later Irresistible Materials (IM), its spin-off company, as having critical fullerene-based technology that would fundamentally enable the development of the next generation of semi-conductors. By working with Dr Alex Robinson and his associates at IM, we jointly have significantly advanced the overall materials chemistry and its application. The IM/Nano-C team is now meeting with commercial partners in the final step to commercialization.

 

Fundraising to date.

Irresistible Materials has raised a total of £660K in funding. Their latest funding was raised on Apr 19, 2018, and backers included Mercia Fund Managers and a syndicate of US angels and Innovate UK.
