Advanced R&D Platform for CNT, Nanowire, Graphene and other Thin Film Growth
First Nano’s EasyTube® 101 System is an advanced Chemical Vapor Deposition process development tool for the University or Industrial Researcher. It is controlled by our proprietary real-time, LabWindow™ based process control software CVDWinPrC™ that provides recipe driven process control, real-time graphing and automatic data logging for optimal process reproducibility. The EasyTube® 101 communicates with a PLC that handles the hardware interface and provides the appropriate industrial level safety systems. The system has a standard Web interface connection that allows for remote training, software upgrades and system trouble shooting.
Our modular platform offers up to eight (8) input lines for gases. Three (3) of the input lines can be configured for solid or liquid sources. Heating is provided by a resistance furnace. The system can be configured for both vacuum and atmospheric processes. The 40 mm (ID) process tube has a usable processing area of 25x50mm and most system options are field upgradable.
The system can be configured to run a wide range of processes – CNT's, Graphene, Nanowires, APCVD, LPCVD, Epitaxial, Oxides, Nitrides, Annealing, Diffusion, Chemical Vapor Infiltration, ALD using selected combinations of gaseous and/or liquid precursors.
The platform is the perfect research tool for next generation material growth and novel process development across many fields including nanoelectronics, semiconductor, photovoltaic, MEMS, composites, structural coatings, etc.
Designed to meet today’s stringent safety standards, the system safely processes pyrophoric, corrosive, flammable and toxic gases such as Silane, Germane, Diborane, Hydrogen Chloride, Hydrogen and metal organic liquid source precursors with a fully developed safety system. The system also has application customized safety protocols imbedded into relay logic, PLC and CVDWinPrC™ software
The EasyTube® 101 is a user friendly, low cost, equipment/process solution for the researcher that has a limited budget and needs turn-key equipment with a baseline process recipe and proven safety system.
