Building on over 10 years of research and development at the University of Birmingham's School of Chemical Engineering, Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory and School of Chemistry, IM has developed a comprehensive intellectual property portfolio, with over a dozen patents covering fullerene materials and processes for applications in next generation lithography, including EUV resists, Spin-on-Carbon, and e-beam resists.

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