Cambridge NanoTech Ships 100th Atomic Layer Deposition System
(Nanowerk News) Today Cambridge NanoTech, the leading supplier of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) systems for research and industry, announced the shipment of their 100th ALD System to the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai, India. The Savannah S100 will be used for making nano-electric devices, such as depositing the gate dielectric for nanowire transistors and also for coating mesoporous structures.
“We decided to buy the Savannah system over many other options because of the outstanding technical support that the Cambridge NanoTech team is known for, plus the flexibility to try new ideas and material systems. In addition, the Savannah has been proven to work well in a multi-user laboratory research environment and offered great value,” said Dr. Mandar Deshmukh, of the Department of Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science. “It also helped that I knew of the work that Dr. Becker did at Harvard before the company was founded.”
“This represents a significant milestone for us,” said Dr. Jill Becker, Founder, Cambridge NanoTech. “Not only is it our 100th system shipment, but also our first system shipped to India. Our business has grown consistently since our inception. We have recently added several key technologists to our team and have expanded our global customer service network to support our burgeoning business. This work at TIFR is indicative of the type of groundbreaking research ALD is enabling worldwide."
