Canada’s University of Waterloo orders Veeco GEN10 MBE system

Canada’s University of Waterloo has ordered a GEN10 molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system from Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA for its recently opened Quantum-Nano Centre (QNC) hosting the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) and the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC). The system will be installed in the new MBE laboratory being established by Professor Zbig Wasilewski, Endowed Nanotechnology chair at WIN.

“MBE technology is rich in its application across several fields of study that we are focusing on here at WIN and IQC. After thorough evaluation, we thought the GEN10 was the best choice due to its flexible cluster architecture, system design details, full automation and relatively small footprint. It ideally fits our needs across many research frontiers. Also, given the importance of effusion cells to our research, we thought Veeco would be a great choice given their expertise and our history with their cells,” said Wasilewski.

Veeco’s GEN10 R&D MBE system allows for up to three configurable, material specific growth modules, enabling high system utilization with multiple researchers simultaneously performing unattended growths and calibrations.

Opened in 2012, the Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre is dedicated to allowing faculty and students to pursue quantum information and nanotechnology research. Shared between the Institute of Quantum Computing and the Waterloo Institute of Nanotechnology, the building fosters cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Jim Northup, vice president, general manager of Veeco’s MBE Operations, added, “Our team is very excited that the University of Waterloo has selected the GEN10 as its first piece of equipment to be installed at the new Quantum-Nano Center. It’s a great example of how Veeco’s state of the art MBE technology continues to remain at the forefront of broad based research around the world.”
