Services

We specialise in microfabrication and nanoscale fabrication and currently offer specific domain expertise in process engineering and device analysis through use of class 100/1000 cleanroom facilities at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN).

Nanotechnology Services UK Include:

Thin Film Deposition and Etching technologies including Reactive Ion Etching (RIE), Photolithography, E-beam lithography, Thermal Oxidation, Chemical Vapour Deposition (and related CVD), Physical Vapor Deposition, Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE), Focused Ion Beam (FIB), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Nano Imprint Lithography (NIL), Sputterring and Evaporation methods including thermal evaporation and ebeam evaporation.

We fabricate electronic devices in a range of materials including both inorganic and organic semiconductors. Our engineers are experienced in design and test of  next generation devices used in the plastic electronics industry including Organic Light Emitting Diodes  (OLED), organic solar Cells (OPV) and Organic Field Effect Transistors (OFET) or Thin Film Transistors (TFT). In addition we have experience in fabricating MEM’s, NEM’s, microfluidic devices, sensors and biosensors as well as a wide range of nanoscale metrology techniques including AFM imaging and SEM imaging.

For clients with intent to scale up their research we design and optimise processes through the product development phase to ensure that as prototypes progress they are optimised to readily scale up for medium/large scale production.

  • Carbon nanotubes accumulate quickly in wetland sediment October 1, 2014
    Using mesocosms that closely approximate wetland ecosystems, researchers show carbon nanotubes accumulate quickly in sediments - a tendency that could indirectly damage aquatic food chains by piggybacking harmful molecules. […]
  • Scientists wield plant viruses against deadly human disease October 1, 2014
    Researchers hope to take a healthy salad up a level by growing a vaccine for an aggressive form of breast cancer in leafy greens. […]
  • Cheap graphene/quantum-dot hybrid outperforms rare metal as fuel-cell catalyst October 1, 2014
    Researchers have combined quantum dots with sheets of graphene to create a hybrid that could greatly cut the cost of generating energy with fuel cells. […]
  • All directions are not created equal for nanoscale heat sources October 1, 2014
    Thermal considerations are rapidly becoming one of the most serious design constraints in microelectronics, especially on submicron scale lengths. A new study has shown that standard thermal models will lead to the wrong answer in a three-dimensional heat-transfer problem if the dimensions of the heating element are on the order of one micron or smaller. […]
  • Novel approach to magnetic measurements atom-by-atom October 1, 2014
    Having the possibility to measure magnetic properties of materials at atomic precision is one of the important goals of today's experimental physics. Researchers propose a new method, utilizing properties of the quantum world - the phase of the electron beam - to detect magnetism with atom-by-atom precision. […]
