New tool - grows carbon nanotubes at room temperature

CEVP has developed a fabrication tool to commercialise the revolutionary low temperature carbon nanotube growth process developed by the University of Surrey's (UniS) Advanced Technology Institute (ATI). The new tool - NanoGrowth - is currently being trialled and characterised by UniS, and the two partners anticipate releasing the technology for commercial use in March 2006. The exploitation of the incredible mechanical and electrical properties of carbon nanotubes in precision applications such as integrated circuits and flat panel displays has been hindered by current growth techniques, which can elevate substrate temperatures to 1000 degrees C or more, resulting in damage or material compatibility issues. In contrast, the NanoGrowth tool, which is designed to deliver nanomaterial growth across areas up to three inches in diameter, employs a unique thermal control system to maintain the growth substrate at room temperature.
