Oxford Instruments  to Host Nanotechnology Seminars in India

Oct 28 2014

Oxford Instruments is hosting its third series of annual seminars for the nanotechnology industry in India in November.  ‘Bringing the Nanoworld Together 2014’ seminars are being held in Kolkata (November 24-25th) and Delhi (November 27-28th) and will showcase  nanotechnology tools and their use in multiple fields.

The first day at each venue will comprise Plenary Sessions focusing on ‘Emerging Materials for Nanoscale Devices - Fabrication & Characterisation’. Day 2 will focus on thin film processing, materials characterisation, surface science and cryogenic environments. 

A wide range of topics will be covered within each technical area. This will also present an excellent opportunity for networking between all participants, including guest speakers from prestigious Indian and international institutes, speakers from the host institutes, and technical experts from Oxford Instruments. 

The thin film processing sessions will review the latest etch and deposition technological advances, including: ALD, Magnetron Sputtering, ICP PECVD, Nanoscale Etch, MEMS, MBE and more.

The materials characterisation, surface science and cryogenic environment sessions will cover multiple topics and technologies including: ultra high vacuum SPM, Cryofree low temperature solutions, XPS/ESCA, an introduction to atomic force microscopy (AFM), and applications such as nanomechanics, in-situ heating and tensile characterisation using EBSD, measuring layer thicknesses and compositions using EDS, and nanomanipulation and fabrication within the SEM / FIB. 

Andor Technology, a recently acquired business, will also be showcasing its high performance optical cameras and software which are used in both the physical and bio sciences.

Previous host Prof. Rudra Pratap, Chairperson at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, IISC Bangalore commented, “This seminar has been extremely well organised with competent speakers covering a variety of processes and tools for nanofabrication. It is great to have practitioners in these areas give talks and provide tips and solutions based on their experience - something that cannot be found in text books.”

This seminar is free to attend but prior booking is essential. For more information or to book a place: www.oxford-instruments.com/btnt
