Aixtron Black Magic Enables CNT and Graphene Deposition at INESC
Press Releases - As issued by company
January 12, 2012... Aachen/Germany--Aixtron SE today announced the successful installation and commissioning of another Black Magic deposition system for carbon nanomaterial deposition at the INESC Microsistemas e Nanotecnologias (INESC MN) in Lisbon, Portugal. The system was installed and commissioned by AIXTRON´s support team for Europe.
Dr. Sara Vieira, principal investigator of the CNT research group at INESC MN, comments, “My current research is focused on the controlled fabrication of CNTs and related nanostructures for electronic applications. The Black Magic system has already proved itself to be indispensible for our current work. Our activities are centered on nanofabricated field emission sources and the system is capable of depositing aligned CNTs with the desired field emission characteristics. Furthermore, the system, with its flexible process window and plasma capabilities, has enabled us to fabricate single, double or multi-walled carbon nanotubes.
I am especially impressed with the design and engineering of the Black Magic system; it is ergonomic, easy to use and reproducible in so many respects and, most importantly, it is also capable of growing graphene, which also has many potential uses in future nanoelectronics. The system provides my group with the ability to independently produce high quality material and the opportunity to initiate new joint projects with other institutions requiring such CNTs and related devices.”
INESC Microsistemas e Nanotecnologias (INESC MN) is a private, non-profit Research and Development institute that was created in 2002 from the Solid State Technology group of INESC. INESC MN operates a Class 10/100 cleanroom with optical and e-beam lithography allowing nanoscale device fabrication. INESC MN is dedicated to leading edge R&D in strategic technological areas of micro- and nano-technologies as well as the application of such technologies to electronic, biological and biomedical devices.
