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.

  • 'Rapid response to Ebola' grant January 27, 2015
    Health care workers must diagnose and isolate Ebola victims at an early stage to have a chance to save them and prevent the virus from spreading. But the most sensitive and quickest diagnostic test produces a small percentage of false negative results that undermine efforts to control the deadly agent. A $100,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant has b […]
  • Stomach acid-powered micromotors get their first test in a living animal (w/video) January 27, 2015
    Scientists have shown that a micromotor fueled by stomach acid can take a bubble-powered ride inside a mouse. These tiny motors, each about one-fifth the width of a human hair, may someday offer a safer and more efficient way to deliver drugs or diagnose tumors. […]
  • Nanoscale lubrication of ionic surfaces January 27, 2015
    Friction impacts motion, hence the need to control friction forces. Currently, this is accomplished by mechanistic means or lubrication, but experiments conducted by researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have uncovered a way of controlling friction on ionic surfaces at the nanoscale using electrical stimulation and ambient water vapor. […]
  • Engineer receives NSF CAREER award for nanotechnology research, educational outreach January 27, 2015
    A prestigious award will support a Kansas State University engineer's research on nanosheets and will help organize educational activities for high school students and teachers. […]
  • New pathway to valleytronics January 27, 2015
    A potential avenue to quantum computing currently generating quite the buzz in the high-tech industry is 'valleytronics', in which information is coded based on the wavelike motion of electrons moving through certain two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors. Now, a promising new pathway to valleytronic technology has been uncovered. […]
