Abstract:
NanoInk's® NanoFabrication Systems Division is pleased to announce that the National Institute for Research and Development of Isotopic and Molecular Technologies Cluj-Napoca (INCDTIM) in Romania has just completed installation of a new DPN 5000 System. The instrument resides within the Department of Molecular and Biomolecular Physics, which is headed by Dr. Ioan Turcu.

Romanian Research Institution Purchases NanoInk's DPN 5000: The DPN 5000 System will be used for supramolecular structure fabrication, molecular recognition and self-assembling process applications

Chicago, IL | Posted on January 18th, 2012

INCDTIM intends to use the NanoInk system to fabricate and characterize supramolecular structures with controlled architecture, study molecular recognitions, and develop self-assembling processes. These application areas have the potential to lead to significant advancements in the fields of printed electronics, sensor devices, and biotherapeutics.
The DPN 5000 System is a full-featured tip-based lithography platform capable of multi-component deposition of a wide range of materials with nanoscale accuracy and precision. Its user-friendly interface enables the deposition of complex patterns by precisely controlling tip movements during the writing process. Using NanoInk's proprietary MEMs devices and deposition protocols with multiple printing materials and substrates, DPN 5000 System users can easily design, create, and analyze nano and microstructures composed of sub-micron sized features. Pattern design and product fabrication are highly scalable and can be completed in less than an hour.
"With the nanoscale patterning advantages of the DPN 5000 System, the INCDTIM institute fully expects to implement and develop a new level of technological research in the Romanian scientific community," said Dr. Adrian Bot, the head of INCDTIM. "A major benefit of the DPN platform is its ability to directly write a wide range of feature sizes (from 50 nm up to 10 microns) to existing surfaces in "bottom-up" nanofabrication applications or to deliver etch resists or etchant materials in "top- down" lithography applications. The DPN 5000 System will enable us to meet the main goals of the Department of Molecular and Biomolecular Physics at INCDTIM Cluj-Napoca."
INCDTIM is the only national research and development institute in the northwestern region of Romania. Researchers, including the team headed by Dr. Adrian Calborean, will use the DPN 5000 System for a number of leading-edge molecular electronic and bionanoelectronic applications, including the design, development and investigation of molecular structures assembled on metallic, glass and polymer surfaces. The DPN 5000 System's atomic force microscope will also drive the characterization of geometrical structures and functionalized surfaces and the NanoInk platform's ability to functionalize SAMs on various surfaces will enable molecular recognition studies.
