Founded in January 2010, Nanomakers designs, manufactures and markets high quality silicon carbide (SiC) and pure silicon or coated with carbon (Si/SiΩC) nanopowders. These nanopowders can increase decisively the mechanical, thermal and chemical performances of many materials used in different industrial sectors (semiconductor, energy storage, aeronautics, space and automotive).

Based on 20 years of research on nanopowders and their production at the CEA, which Nanomakers is the sole licensee, the company has a five years lead over any competing technology worldwide.


This historical root with the CEA, and the licensing of all patents and know-how has enabled Nanomakers to have an operational and marketable product portfolio.


This portfolio covers the entire industrial value chain and includes a range of tailor-made nanopowders, a stable production process and a range of containers for transporting and processing powders at customers.
