Materials

Our in-house materials department is run by our hand-picked team of the best and brightest in their field. Our on-site equipment consists of a Class 100 (ISO 5) cleanroom with state-of-the-art synthesis equipment – capable of producing novel nanomaterials – and electrical characterisation equipment capable of measuring the properties of these materials.

In addition we have a standard materials lab with two box furnaces, one tube furnace and a VSP300 Bio-Logic Potentiostat capable of measuring electrical properties of supercapacitors.

Our equipment includes:

Picosun R200 Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) Reactor: capable of depositing sub-nanometer layers in a controlled manner, conformally over 200 mm diameter wafers.

Probe Station with vibration table, 4294A HP impedance analyser, and 2601B Keithley SMU: capable of measuring the dielectric and IV response of materials.

M2000V Woollam Rotating Compensator Ellipsometer with automated mapping table: capable of measuring nanometric thin films accurately.  Can also be used in-situ with the ALD reactor to measure growth of thin films during the depositing process.

M307 Moorfield thermal evaporator: used for depositing metal electrodes on samples.
