RAMS 2017 Conference

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.

Graphene growth by transfer-free chemical vapour deposition on a cobalt layer

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 […]

Graphene growth by chemical vapor deposition process on copper foil

Macháč, P., et al. ElectroScope 2016 The paper demonstrates the production of graphene using the cold-walled method as implemented in the nanoCVD-8G. Link: Moorfield products: 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.

Mapping nanoscale electrochemistry of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes

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.
