Winner of the T-Up Excellence Award, Dr Guo Hong Chen takes pride in “Chameleon“, a product that he has co-created with the team at SOLVES Innovative Technology Pte Ltd (SOLVES) over three years.
“Chameleon” is an apparatus to mass-produce coloured fasteners (e.g. screws for the microelectronic industry) in large volumes by depositing ultra-thin films onto them.The thickness of films can be precisely controlled such that the refraction would produce vivid colours onto these fasteners for easier identification.These films can also provide anti-corrosion properties.
The technology behind “Chameleon” is the Computational fluiddynamic Assisted Synchronous Controlled (CASC) Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). “Chameleon” also utilises a high performance computer to simulate reactant gas flow in a vacuum chamber for complex 3D surfaces.
“Working with Dr Guo Hong Chen has been a pleasant experience. He is very helpful,hard-working, and fits seamlessly into our team. I appreciate his relentless enthusiasm to utilise his scientific knowledge for industrial applications,” commented Mr Koh Teng Hwee,Managing Director of SOLVES.
