Oxford Instruments organises two seminars in India

UK-based etch, deposition and growth system maker Oxford Instruments is planning two seminars this year in India. BTNT 2013 will be held at Mohali (29 November) in association with "Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Mohali", "Institute of Nano Science and Technology”, and at Mumbai (2 & 3 December) in association with "Indian Institute of Technology Bombay'. The seminars will focus on nanotechnology tools and their use in multiple fields.

Both events will feature two parallel sessions focusing on thin film processing, & materials characterisation, surface science and cryogenic environments and a wide range of topics will be covered within each technical area. These sessions will include guest international speakers from renowned research institutions, speakers from the host institutes, and technical experts from Oxford Instruments.

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

Materials characterisation, Surface Science and Cryogenic Environment sessions will cover multiple topics and technologies including: Ultra high vacuum SPM, Cryo free 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, Nanomanipulation and fabrication within the SEM / FIB.

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

 “By providing these educational events in addition to our high technology tools and superior service, we are proving our commitment to our customers, encouraging discussion and cross dissemination of ideas that will benefit all those attending,” said Mark Sefton, sector head of Oxford Instruments Nanotechnology Tools.

These events are free of charge, but prior booking is essential. For booking, visit:
