IIT Pisa Leverages Aixtron Systems for Graphene Production

Aixtron of Aachen, Germany, announced that the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Pisa, Italy, has ordered two Aixtron BM Pro (Black Magic Pro) systems in a 4-inch wafer configuration. IIT Pisa researchers plan to use these systems for the development and production of graphene for the implementation of novel hydrogen storage systems.

One system will be used to deposit graphene using both chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD). The second BM Pro system is configured for high temperature (1800
