Engineered to Defection

Engineered to Defection

30 March 2017

Researchers at the University of Cambridge and Nokia Research Centre have used Moorfield’s nanoETCH to carefully ‘damage’ single graphene sheets in order to minimise contact resistances in fabricated devices. The technique, a form of defect engineering, is reported in Nature Communications as part of work on room-temperature pyroelectric bolometers. Dr. Ugo Sassi, lead author of the work, said "Moorfield’s soft-etching technology was critical in allowing us create devices for accurate analysis of the underlying physical phenomena we set out to study". More information on the nanoETCH system and soft-etching technology can be found here.

ANNEAL system announced

Moorfield announces new product range: ANNEAL

20 December 2016

Moorfield are pleased to announce their latest product range—ANNEAL systems for 2D materials research! ANNEAL systems contain stainless steel vacuum chambers fitted with various heating technologies for annealing substrates up to 6" diameter at controlled temperatures up to 1000 °C. Options include a variety of process gases and pumping systems, together with automatic pressure control for precise, repeatable sample processing. All in a benchtop package! Find out more

Take the hassle out of component integration with Moorfield "System-on-a-Flange"!

Configurable for evaporation, sputtering, ion sources and more, and with all flange options covered for easy bolt-on to existing chambers and other system hardware, leave in-chamber geometry to the experts and get productive quicker. For more information, contact us

Moorfield demo tours

We're back from another demo tour, with more on the way!

20 November 2016

This time we took our nanoETCH and nanoPVD systems along to Paris, Caen and Toulouse for some live product demostrations. Thank you everyone who came to see us. Next up is Benelux and Scandanavia in early 2017.

Clean Environments offer a wealth of experience in cleanroom design and crucially, cleanroom use.

Over the past two decades Moorfield have developed a range of rapid-assembly, HEPA-filtered clean environment products, designed for low cost and for on-demand availability.
