NanoKTN and JEMI Announce first Nano Micro Systems Focus Group

UK | Posted on March 25th, 2009

The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), one of the UK's primary knowledge-based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, has announced a strategic partnership with the Joint Equipment Materials Initiative (JEMI) to launch the first Nano Micro Systems event. The focus group will look at the area of Atomic Layer Disposition (ALD) and will see presentations from key players in the industry, including Metryx, Beneq, Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).

Presentations will give delegates an insight into the technique of ALD and how to control and monitor the processes and scale up to large areas and there will be a focus on applications in lighting displays and high performance CMOS semiconductors.

A panel session, to be hosted by Dr Rob Stevens from RAL, Professor PK Nathan from Brunel University and Ric Allott from UK Displays and Lighting KTN, will focus on the current standing of the UK both academically and industrially, and will look at where market opportunities exist and are created through commercialisation of IP as well as strategic partnerships. The panel sessions will look at opportunities in the UK supply chain and will allow delegates to question the speakers on presentation content and pressing issues to promote an open exchange of ideas.

The NanoKTN and JEMI are hopeful that the focus group will meet the objective of stimulating the formation of the complete supply chain, for successful implementation of nanotechnology in this industry sector.

"This focus group will be looking at and evaluating all the issues of the supply chain for the Nanotechnology sector looking to supply into the Nano-electronics, MEMS and other related emerging hi-tech sectors and is of vital importance to anyone who plays a role in this chain," explains Alec Reader, Director of the NanoKTN.

Reader continues, "There will be a number of exhibits available to explore which will openly promote an exchange of ideas and will be the source of much valuable information."

Key areas to be explored are the fundamentals of ALD processing, the challenges of Precursor Materials for ALD, overviews of ALD in the UK and the opportunities and threats in the UK supply chain and applications in displays and lighting.

The Nano Micro Systems focus group takes place on 31st March 2009 at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Didcot. Keynote speakers include Dr Robert Stevens from Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Professor Colin Whitehouse from STFC and Mervyn Miles from the Bristol Centre for Nanotechnology and Quantum Science.

All sectors of the supply chain are encouraged to register for the Nano Micro Systems Event. Registration can be completed by visiting the JEMI website at: www.jemiuk.com/Event.htm.

Membership to the NanoKTN and this event is free of charge. For more information about how to join, please visit www.nanoktn.com

Established by the Technology Strategy Board, the NanoKTN is managed by Centre for Process Innovation Ltd, a leading technology development and consulting company.

About NanoKTN
The NanoKTN facilitates the transfer of knowledge and experience between industry and research, offering companies dealing in small-scale technology access to information on new processes, patents and funding as well as keeping up-to-date with industry regulation. The four broad areas that the NanoKTN focuses on are: Promoting and facilitating knowledge exchange, supporting the growth of UK capabilities, raising awareness of Nanotechnology, and providing thought leadership and input to UK policy and strategy.

About Knowledge Transfer Networks (KTNs):
Knowledge Transfer Networks (KTNs) are national networks in specific fields of technology or business application, which bring together people from businesses, universities, research, finance, the public sector and technology organisations to stimulate innovation through knowledge exchange.

Funded by the Technology Strategy Board, their activities play an increasingly important role in the development of the Government's technology strategy, and help to feed and drive theCollaborative Research & Development Programme and other innovation interventions.

There are currently 24 KTNs with a total membership of about 25,000 people.

For further information please see www.ktnetworks.co.uk

About CPI:
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) was established by One NorthEast as a UK wide resource to stimulate and drive innovation within the Process Industry. Working with global industry partners and leading research universities CPI is committed to delivering world-class, groundbreaking applied research and development.

About The Technology Strategy Board:
The Technology Strategy Board (www.innovateuk.org) is a business-led executive nondepartmental public body, established by the government. Its role is to promote and support research into, and development and exploitation of, technology and innovation for the benefit of UK business, in order to increase economic growth and improve the quality of life.

About JEMI UK:
Jemi UK Ltd is the Joint Equipment and Materials Initiative. It is the only association truly representing the interests of manufacturers and suppliers of equipment, materials and services for Semiconductor production across the UK and Ireland. Its aim is to promote the development of a strong UK infrastructure to support the growth of companies wishing to design, develop and manufacture semiconductor devices within the UK.
