Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that a dual GENxplor R&D molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system has been ordered by the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) for research into exploring and controling the properties of new materials.

“This is a primary focus for our R&D team at SBQMI, and we’re confident that the flexibility, precision and quality provided by Veeco’s MBE expertise will aid in our efforts to achieve scientific breakthroughs utilizing the diverse properties of 2D crystal materials,” says Ke Zou, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at UBC.

Veeco says that GENxplor is the industry’s first fully integrated MBE system for the compound semiconductor R&D market. Due to its process flexibility, GENxplor is suitable for a broad range of MBE applications such as high-efficiency solar cells and high-temperature superconductors. Accordingly, the system’s can enable the advancement of 2D materials (crucial for the development of next-generation nanotechnologies and digital electronics).

“UBC is renowned for its work researching the complex quantum phenomena emerging in novel engineered materials,” comments Gerry Blumenstock, VP & general manager of MBE and ALD products at Veeco. “As the institute’s researchers expand R&D efforts, we’re excited to support UBC’s exploration of 2D materials through MBE.”
