quotes for Atomic Layer Deposition services

i want to have a multilayer block manufactured. it will be composed of 2 different alternating metals, each thickness of tens of nanometers. the finished block would be about 1" x 1" x 0.5".

for those that can provide this manufacturing service, how much probably would they charge for it? i just don't wanna be sending the request one by one then receiving obscene (at least for my budget) quotes.

RE: quotes for Atomic Layer Deposition services

Have to ask - what would be an obscene quote in this case?
Building a .5" thick part out of films in the tens of nanometers? Sounds expensive no matter what.

RE: quotes for Atomic Layer Deposition services

^agghhh..... i was afraid of that.

RE: quotes for Atomic Layer Deposition services

I think the only practical method would be through folding a forging, like how gold leaf, some sword blades, and pastry dough is made.

RE: quotes for Atomic Layer Deposition services

do you even know, how small is a nanometer with regards to 1cm?
what are you trying to make and why are you trying to make it like that (two metals)?

@cloa - Interesting, I haven't seen these before. Speculating that he wanted to make a reactive block rather than foil?

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
