Abstract:
NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division is pleased to announce that the Laboratory for Nanometallurgy in the Department of Materials at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zurich) in Switzerland purchased a DPN 5000 System - a dedicated, versatile instrument capable of patterning a variety of materials with nanoscale accuracy and precision.

ETH Zurich Purchases NanoInk's DPN 5000 to Open Pathways for Sustainable Materials Development: Prestigious research institute will use the DPN 5000 System to fabricate nanoscale graded and composite materials

Chicago, IL | Posted on February 28th, 2012

ETH Zurich intends to use the NanoInk platform to synthesize geometrically and structurally complex nano structures. Graded and composite nanoscale materials will be fabricated to function as model systems for materials that have only local special properties. This research is expected to open pathways to more sustainable materials development.

"Our laboratory focuses on the investigation and understanding of size effects in materials. We have traditionally concentrated our efforts on metallic systems, but the addition of NanoInk's DPN 5000 System will allow us to expand our capabilities to include the study of more complex nanostructures," said professor Ralph Spolenak, chair of the Laboratory for Nanometallurgy at ETH Zurich.

The DPN 5000 System is a full-featured tip-based lithography platform capable of multi-component deposition of a wide range of materials in sub-micron sized features. Its user-friendly interface enables the deposition of complex patterns by precisely controlling tip movements during the writing process. Combining NanoInk's proprietary MEMs devices and patterning protocols with a multitude of printing materials and substrates, DPN 5000 System users can easily design, create, and analyze nano and microstructures. Pattern design and product fabrication are highly scalable.

"We are pleased that the Laboratory for Nanometallurgy at ETH Zurich has selected our DPN 5000 System. With the NanoInk platform, professor Spolenak's team will be able to fabricate substrates with multiple features ranging in size from 50 nm to 1 micron within a few hours and immediately characterize the deposited patterns using a fully-functional, integrated atomic force microscope," said Robert Marchmont, general manager, NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
