Cambridge NanoTech, the leading Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) solutions provider to academic and industrial institutions worldwide, has joined the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics at Georgia Tech as member of the Center’s Industrial Affiliates Program.
Cambridge NanoTech delivers ALD systems capable of depositing ultra-thin films that are used in a wide variety of research and industrial applications. As a member of the program, Cambridge NanoTech will connect to the faculty expertise and highly trained student and graduates of the Center as well as an international network of industrial partners in the field of organic photonics and electronics. This includes access to the latest research and discoveries in this emerging field.
“By approaching material science development through the use of fundamental techniques such as Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), scientists and engineers are able to improve device performance and produce novel applications” explained Ganesh Sundaram, Vice President of Technology at Cambridge NanoTech. “ALD is capable of depositing flexible, multi-functional materials at low deposition temperatures, which is ideal when integrating these materials into organic electronics and photonics.”
Cambridge NanoTech first introduced ALD systems nine years ago and has an install base of over 300 systems on six continents. Cambridge NanoTech’s ALD systems have become an important strategic solution for researchers and manufacturers that require highly conformal and uniform thin film oxides, nitrides, sulfides, and metals.
Dr. Sundaram added “Unquestionably, organic electronics and photonics is an emerging field that is rapidly growing and we are excited to join the Industrial Affiliates Program so that we can participate in finding applications that meld the areas of ALD and organic science.”
Bernard Kippelen, Director of the Center stated, “Our Center has pioneered the use of ALD in organic field-effect transistors and has been able to achieve excellent stability in such devices using a Cambridge NanoTech ALD system. We are looking forward to this strategic partnership to continue to advance the science and engineering of ALD and broaden its application spectrum.”
