Home > Press > Carbon nanotube tool developer appoints AxR as its US representative

Abstract:
Surrey NanoSystems, a joint venture between the University of Surrey's Advanced Technology Institute and CEVP Ltd, has appointed Axiom Resources Technologies (AxR) as its US representative. The agreement provides local technical support throughout North America for the company's novel low-temperature carbon nanotube growth tool, via AxR's headquarters in Orange, California, and a large network of regional support staff.

Carbon nanotube tool developer appoints AxR as its US representative

UK | Posted on November 28th, 2007

Surrey NanoSystems' first carbon nanotube tool, NanoGrowth 1000n, is attracting a lot of interest as it incorporates proven nanomaterial processing recipes developed at the Advanced Technology Institute, which operate at temperatures compatible with commercial semiconductor processes. Precision fabrication and configuration repeatability principles are also at the core of the tool's architecture, which has been developed by engineers with many years of experience of creating thin-film tools for both scientific research and commercial fabrication. Surrey NanoSystems also manufactures a high-end thin film sputtering tool, the Gamma 1000. This features a highly modular architecture, making it very versatile, and the system is often selected for research and development applications.

"We chose AxR as our representative because of the company's solid track record in the semiconductor equipment arena, and for its excellent knowledge of the emerging nanotechnologies marketplace," says Duncan Cooper, Sales and Marketing Director of Surrey NanoSystems.

"AxR sells a lot of complementary equipment, and is able to configure turnkey growth solutions for R&D staff working on nanomaterials projects."

AxR's CEO Greg Mills adds: "The low temperature growth capability of the NanoGrowth tool is highly novel, and gives us a unique opportunity to support the development of carbon nanotube structures that can serve as replacements for the copper interconnects used in today's semiconductor processes. We're very excited to have won this franchise."
