Optoelectronics Research Centre At University Of Southampton Purchases Nanoink’s Dpn 5000 System

Chicago, IL | Posted on February 9th, 2011

NanoInk's® NanoFabrication Systems Division is pleased to announce that the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton, U.K., purchased a DPN® 5000 System to be used for the fabrication of nanostructured photonic metamaterials, nanophotonics and sensors. NanoInk's DPN 5000 System is a full-featured, dedicated instrument for versatile nanopatterning of a variety of materials with nanoscale accuracy and precision. With its user-friendly interface, it is possible to easily design complex patterns while also precisely controlling the tip movements during the writing process.

"NanoInk's DPN 5000 system provides unique advantages in terms of materials deposition capability and scalability and we believe that many exciting research and commercial opportunities will develop from this technology," said Dr. Kevin MacDonald, Senior Research Fellow at the ORC. "It will be particularly important in the development of our research on nanophotonics, metamaterials and optical sensors."

"The DPN 5000 enhances the Optoelectronics Research Centre's world class nanoscale research in the areas of applied photonics and nanotechnology. It has the ability to deliver unique capabilities in new areas of research, including nanobiology applications," said Robert Marchmont, General Manager of Europe, the Middle East and Africa for NanoInk. "We look forward to being active collaboration partners with this internationally renowned centre."

NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division brings sophisticated nanofabrication to the laboratory desktop in an easy to use and affordable setting. It provides the ability to design and create custom engineered and functionalized surfaces with nanometer scale precision and sub-cellular resolution, which enables cutting edge nanofabrication, nanoengineering and nanobiological applications.
