Transparent conductive oxide deposition: The solution is clear

Transparent conductive oxide deposition: The solution is clear

24 August 2017

Deposition of TCOs such as ITO, AZO and ZnO is common throughout photovoltaic and touchscreen R&D, with high-quality fabrication requiring precise control of sputtering conditions such as power, temperature and atmospheric pressure/chemistry. Moorfield technology is optimised for this, with our nanoPVD and MiniLab ranges providing solutions to match all budgets and specifications.

Engineered to Defection

Engineered to Defection

30 March 2017

Researchers at the University of Cambridge and Nokia Research Centre have used Moorfield’s nanoETCH to carefully ‘damage’ single graphene sheets in order to minimise contact resistances in fabricated devices. The technique, a form of defect engineering, is reported in Nature Communications as part of work on room-temperature pyroelectric bolometers. Dr. Ugo Sassi, lead author of the work, said "Moorfield’s soft-etching technology was critical in allowing us create devices for accurate analysis of the underlying physical phenomena we set out to study". More information on the nanoETCH system and soft-etching technology can be found here.

Clean Environments offer a wealth of experience in cleanroom design and crucially, cleanroom use.

Over the past two decades Moorfield have developed a range of rapid-assembly, HEPA-filtered clean environment products, designed for low cost and for on-demand availability.
