Moorfield will be at the RAMS 2017 conference at the University of Exeter. Come along to meet our expert sales engineers and to see demos of our benchtop nanoPVD (thin-film deposition) and nanoCVD (graphene synthesis) systems.
Macháč, P., et al. Journal of Electrical Engineering 2017 DOI: 10.1515/jee-2017-0011 The work reports the synthesis of few-layer graphene films at the interface of an SiO2 chip and a cobalt thin film. The cobalt layer decomposes methane feedstock, absorbs the carbon released at the SiO2/cobalt interface where it assembles into an sp2 layer. This approach […]
Macháč, P., et al. ElectroScope 2016 The paper demonstrates the production of graphene using the cold-walled method as implemented in the nanoCVD-8G.

Selection, characterisation and mapping of complex electrochemical processes at individual single-walled carbon nanotubes: the case of serotonin oxidation
Güell, A. G., et al. Faraday Discussions 2014 DOI: 10.1039/C4FD00054D SWNTs are employed for the electrochemical detection of the neurotransmitter serotonin. In this report, the detection mechanism is investigated at the single-SWNT level using a variery of techniques. The results indicate that pristine SWNTs exhibit a high level of activity as sensors for biologically-relevant species. […]
Nanoscale electrocatalysis: Visualizing oxygen reduction at pristine, kinked, and oxidized sites on individual carbon nanotubes
Byers, J. C., et al. Journal of the American Chemical Society 2014 DOI: 10.1021/ja505708y Electrochemical techniques, in combination with SWNTs produced using nanoCVD-8N technology, are used to demonstrate that carbon nanotubes exhibit significant activity even when not doped, modified or defected.

Güell, A. G., et al. Nano Letters 2014 DOI: 10.1021/nl403752e Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), made using nanoCVD-8N technology, are probed using electrochemical techniques. The high-resolution measurements enable the properties of individual SWNTs to be examined. The findings are important for future design of devices employing SWNT electrodes.
