NTU Singapore orders Aixtron Black Magic system for high-frequency electronics CNT project

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany says that Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has procured an Aixtron 2-inch Black Magic PECVD (plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition) system.

The turnkey system has been installed and commissioned by the local Aixtron service and support team in the Nanoelectronics Laboratory of NTU’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and will be used for the preparation of carbon nanotubes (CNT) and graphene for high-frequency electronic devices.

“Our new project involves the research and development of new types of materials for high-frequency electronics,” says professor Beng Kang Tay. “In particular, we plan to develop new interconnect and similar technologies for these devices using structures based on CNT, graphene and other carbon materials. These unique functional materials have great promise for the manufacture of RF electronic devices for advanced communications and networks,” he adds.

Tay is currently the principle investigator of the project. He has many years of experience in thin-film technology, especially in tetrahedral amorphous carbon, nanocomposite carbon and CNT.

“As our work primarily focuses on the development of latest applications and devices, we needed a system that is flexible, reliable and ergonomic, whilst providing simultaneously highest-quality reproducible thin films,” continues Tay. “Our stringent requirements stem from the fact that our work demands the highest-quality films 100% of the time.”
