Acerde, founded in 2006, is an expert in the growth of advanced materials, using the HTCVD process (High Temperature Chemical Vapor Deposition). HTCVD is a process which enables the deposition of extremely pure, high-quality materials for applications in demanding environments (notably in the nuclear, aerospace and medical sectors).
Truffle Capital’s investment in Acerde in October 2010 will enable it to develop its technology for X-ray tube anodes.
With another application of its technology, Acerde aims to produce Al-N wafers for the semiconductor industry.
