Advance American Technology

Enable future technologies with future materials

As the world demands new technological pathways, material advancements in microelectronics are becoming the backbone of modern technology.

The American Materials Technology Partnership is a driving force behind materials innovation – bringing together the top voices in U.S. microelectronics. With a focus on forward-thinking material designs, the coalition’s call to bolster, develop and innovate will help the United States maintain its strategic advantage and craft the future of technology.

The Challenge.

With new technological innovations on the horizon, new, extremely pure and high-functioning materials are in demand.

During the first major wave of growth, the United States paved the way forward and became the world leader in the field.

It is time for the United States to expand its leadership in microelectronics. The foundation for this growth is based on critical material designs that are pivotal in creating trailblazing technology platforms.

Our Solution.

A robust U.S. microelectronics industry is imperative to national security, advanced technology competitiveness and job creation.

It is time for the United States to step up again and lead the charge in producing cutting-edge technologies through the creation of new, advanced material designs. This material innovation cannot only enhance current technological capabilities, but also pave a path forward for the next materials age.

The American Materials Technology Partnership shines a spotlight on the importance of materials development that pushes forward all facets of technology.

12%

Thirty years ago, more than one third of the world’s microchips were produced by U.S. companies. Now, domestic production has leveled off and the United States manufactures 12 percent of microchips globally.

80%

Approximately 80 percent of chip manufacturing is taking place outside of the United States. Other countries are ramping up to lead the world’s semiconductor production in less than ten years.

$16

Every government dollar invested in semiconductor research including material advancement creates $16 in GDP growth.

Areas of opportunity.

Sparking innovation.

Boosting innovation in fabricated and functional materials will empower the future of technology. These materials and technologies will create a path forward for advancements in energy, artificial intelligence, water, automated vehicles, cloud computing and other areas of modern life. These areas will strengthen innovation by increasing durability, lifetime, strength and efficiency of a device.

Bolstering the supply chain.

As manufacturing in the microelectronics field continues to grow around the world, the United States will generate the most sought-after materials that will provide the entire nation with competitive advantages over rival technologies. By fostering and refining supply and value chains domestically, the United States will generate the highest quality of materials and deliver key feedback to create the best results. Without leading materials innovation, the fabs and equipment, while necessary, will not be sufficient to safeguard U.S. leadership in this critical sector.

Educating the new generation.

Protecting the environment.

The American Materials Technology Partnership has demonstrated a true commitment to green manufacturing. By embracing green practices, this partnership will showcase how to produce first class materials and create innovative technology without harming the environment.

Why Are Materials Important?

The raw materials used in microelectronics are the building blocks towards future technology. These pure materials play an instrumental role in the inner workings of tablet computers, smartphones, digital cameras, televisions, LED lighting and more. By producing pure materials and discovering material science advancements, these tools will be foundational for new approaches in areas such as flexible electronics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and quantum. If the United States falls behind in creating materials with zero defects and minimal contamination, technology cannot continue to bloom.
