Industry Access

ATAMI is open to outside users and encourages interaction with industry. We collaborate with small and large companies to develop nano and microtechnology solutions, from efficient jet engines to a portable dialysis appliance.

Please refer to our "How to Get Started as a New User at ATAMI" page for external users if you are interested in becoming a facility user.

In addition to collaborative work, the facilities, on a pay-for-service basis, provide those who do not have equipment or who need extra bandwidth, with access to high-cost capital equipment and technical expertise. We fulfill time-critical needs during production ramp and intense phases of research and development. Users include biotech, semiconductor, solar, wood products, defense and advanced materials companies and universities.


Here are just a few examples of external collaborators:

  • CH2MHill: Collaborating with Oregon State University, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Voxtel Inc. on improving manufacturing processes for PV production. Image at right is a representation of the core/shell/ligand shell Voxtel’s nanodot technology.
  • Northwest Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: Working on novel microchannel fuel injection systems. A detailed project overview is available on the ONAMI website.
  • Trillium Fiber Fuels: Generating ethanol from agricultural residues. A detailed project overview is available on the ONAMI website.
