Abstract:
Researchers from the University of Southampton will next week be demonstrating the success of an industrial collaboration which is creating cutting-edge nanotechnology needed for smaller, low power devices.

Southampton to demonstrate success of industrial partnerships

UK | Posted on June 16th, 2011

‘Knowledge Creation Partnership - From Funding to Results' at the University of Southampton's new Mountbatten Building on Thursday 30 June, brings together University researchers in nanotechnology with industrialists from Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) to describe how the two organisations have worked together to develop a suite of nanotechnology tools.

The workshop, which is open to industry and academia, will demonstrate how both groups have benefited from this two-year collaboration.

"At the event, industry will learn about new processes and how to push the boundaries of technology and then develop it further," said Dr Harold Chong of the University's Nano Research Group within ECS-Electronics and Computer Science. "We have the knowledge and they have the machines."

The University and OIPT worked together to develop a suite of processes for the OIPT tools which will be used to make nanoscale transistors. These are plasma-based technologies which provide etching and deposition functions on nanoscale materials and are being used in the new Southampton Nanofabrication Centre, one of Europe's leading multidisciplinary state-of-the-art cleanroom complexes.

The cross-fertilisation of ideas between the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre and Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology has led to a unique method for fabricating polysilicon nanowires for application in nanowire biosensors. The method is suitable for mass production, and biosensor blood-testing kits are being developed for the early detection of respiratory diseases.

Location: Mountbatten Building, University of Southampton
Opening hours: 9.30am-4pm GMT
