Ilika, a pioneer in materials innovation and solid-state battery technology, says a European patent has been granted in respect of its unique high-throughput vapour deposition synthesis platform, which is licensed exclusively to Ilika from the University of Southampton. 

The equivalent US, Japanese and Canadian applications were confirmed as granted in May 2012.   Chief executive Graeme Purdy said: "Our ability to synthesize large numbers of inorganic materials using our proprietary combinatorial vapour deposition method is central to our business model, and we welcome this European recognition alongside that already received in the US, Canada and Japan."
