Moorfield now offer educational courses on: Vacuum pump theory and maintenance; Helium leak detection & advanced leak detection; Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) and Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry (QMS). All courses combine theory and practical aspects and are available at the Moorfield factory or your location. Contact the Moorfield Vacuum Components division for details and pricing.
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.
