Oxford Instruments shares expertise with nanotechnology researchers in India

Oxford Instruments has just completed its second series of seminars in India following its first in Bangalore in 2012. Over 500 people registered overall during the two events, emphasising the intense interest in the nanotechnology sciences. With its key theme of “Tooling Nano,” the seminars took place first at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Mohali, followed by the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay Mumbai, and focused on cutting edge nanotechnology tools and their use in multiple fields.

At each venue, two parallel sessions focussed on fabrication and analysis methods, with scientific and technology papers on a wide range of topics within each technical area. These sessions included guest international speakers including speakers from the University of Cambridge and University of Bath, UK, and TU Delft in the Netherlands, TATA Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, IIT Bombay, and IISER Mohali. Technical experts from Oxford Instruments also presented. The events provided an excellent opportunity for networking and information sharing between all participants.

The fabrication sessions discussed latest etch and deposition technological advances, including: ALD, Magnetron Sputtering, ICP PECVD, Nanoscale Etch, MEMS, MBE and more. The Analysis sessions covered multiple topics and technologies including: Ultra high vacuum SPM, Cryo free low temperature solutions, XPS/ESCA, an introduction to atomic force microscopy and applications such as nanomechanics, In-situ heating and tensile characterisation using EBSD, measuring layer thicknesses and compositions using EDS, nanomanipulation and fabrication within the SEM / FIB.

“Oxford Instruments is a provider of high technology solutions, actively listening and engaging with our customers for mutual success, building long term relationships based on trust and respect”, comments Mark Sefton, Sector Head of Oxford Instruments Nanotechnology Tools, “Educational events such as these, coupled with our high technology tools and superior service, demonstrate our commitment to our customers, and encourage discussion and cross dissemination of ideas that  benefit us all.”
