Materials fabrication processes for biomedical applications

Biomedical devices such as sensors and drug delivery patches pose an interesting challenge in material fabrication due to stringent requirements of substrates, thermal budgets etc. This post outlines five examples from literature of plasma and thermal processes done on Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology tools used for applications in healthcare. ZnO nanowire sensors fabricated using ALD …

Deposition – A question of choice

Atomic Layer deposition

Often the first question in any discussion on deposition processes is which technique is best suited. Often the answer to this question is clear, but in some cases it requires a detailed understanding of the application and production targets in order to give a qualified answer. Typical questions to understand which technique to use are: …

Atomic Scale Processing

Atomic Scale Processing cluster tool diagram

‘I, a universe of atoms, an atom in the universe’ Richard P. Feynman Everything we do involves the manipulation of atoms so what’s the big deal about Atomic Scale Processing? It is the creation or removal of material one atomic layer at a time that’s what, which I still find amazing. Consider a human hair, …
