Oxford Instruments launches third annual Indian nanotech seminars

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

The first day at each venue comprises Plenary Sessions focusing on ‘Emerging Materials for Nanoscale Devices - Fabrication & Characterization’. Day 2 will focus on thin-film processing, materials characterization, surface science and cryogenic environments. A wide range of topics will be covered within each technical area. This will also present an opportunity for networking between all participants, including guest speakers from Indian and international institutes, speakers from the host institutes, and technical experts from Oxford Instruments.

The thin-film processing sessions will review the latest technical advances in etch and deposition, including: atomic layer deposition (ALD), magnetron sputtering, inductively coupled plasma (ICP) plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD), nanoscale etch, micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS), and molecular beam epitaxy (MBE).

The materials characterization, surface science and cryogenic environment sessions will cover multiple topics and technologies including: ultra-high-vacuum scanning probe microscopy (SPM), cryo-free low-temperature solutions, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS)/electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), an introduction to atomic force microscopy (AFM) and applications such as nanomechanics, in-situ heating and tensile characterization using electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), measuring layer thicknesses and compositions using energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), nanomanipulation and fabrication within the SEM/FIB. The recently acquired business Andor Technology will also be showcasing its high-performance optical cameras and software, which are used in both the physical and bio sciences.

“We are demonstrating our commitment to our customers through providing these learning events, encouraging discussion and cross dissemination of ideas that is of benefit to all those attending,” says Mark Sefton of Oxford Instruments Nanotechnology Tools. “We want our customers to be empowered to use these systems to the best of their abilities, with the maximum information possible behind them.”

The seminar is free to attend but prior booking is essential.
