Oxford Instruments hosts seminar in Bangalore

UK-based etch and deposition system maker Oxford Instruments organised a two day Nanotechnology Seminar last week at IISc Bangalore, India, which attracted over 200 attendees from both academia and industry. With two parallel sessions running, Thin Film Processing and Materials Characterisation, the event was the largest seminar organised by the firm to date.

Attendees were introduced to the range of nanotechnology tools offered by Oxford Instruments, and learned about the latest processing techniques and findings in an informal atmosphere where participation and interaction was encouraged. Both the Thin Film Processing and Materials Characterisation seminars attracted guest speakers from IISc Bangalore, India, USA and Europe, with talks on etch and deposition processing, and plasma technologies, materials characterisation, surface science and cryogenic environments.

“This seminar has been very well organised with competent speakers covering a variety of processes and tools for nano fabrication. It is great to have practitioners of the art give talks and provide tips and solutions based on their experience, something that can you cannot find in books” said Prof. Rudra Pratap, chairperson at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, “I hope Oxford Instruments organises such workshops on a regular basis. This is likely to engage researchers and industrial users alike in lively discussions on innovative usage.

Mr Anurag Tandon, managing director of Oxford Instruments India added, “We were pleased to have attracted such a large, high calibre audience to our seminar in Bangalore, and are extremely honoured that so many distinguished guest speakers gave their time to speak about their work in plasma processing and materials characterisation. We are expanding our presence in India and have just held the official opening of our new subsidiary office in Mumbai. This highly successful event showcased our state-of the art demonstration and customer support facility and introduced the wide range of tools and systems that Oxford Instruments supplies to the research and industrial communities.”
