Home > Press > ‘Bringing the Nanoworld Together’ (BTNT), an initiative from Oxford Instruments to share expertise with Nanotechnology researchers in India

Abstract:
Following the great success of Oxford Instruments' seminar in Bangalore last December, the company has planned two more seminars to be held this year in India. BTNT 2013 will be held at Mohali (29th November) in association with "Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Mohali", "Institute of Nano Science and Technology", and at Mumbai (2nd & 3rd December) in association with "Indian Institute of Technology Bombay'. The seminars will focus on cutting edge nanotechnology tools and their use in multiple fields.

‘Bringing the Nanoworld Together’ (BTNT), an initiative from Oxford Instruments to share expertise with Nanotechnology researchers in India

Yatton, UK | Posted on September 18th, 2013

At both events, two parallel sessions will focus on thin film processing, & materials characterisation, surface science and cryogenic environments and a wide range of topics will be covered within each technical area. These sessions will include guest international speakers from renowned research institutions, speakers from the host institutes, and technical experts from Oxford Instruments. This will also present an excellent opportunity for networking between all participants.

The thin film processing sessions will review latest etch and deposition technological advances, including: ALD, Magnetron Sputtering, ICP PECVD, Nanoscale Etch, MEMS, MBE and more.

Materials characterisation, Surface Science and Cryogenic Environment sessions will cover multiple topics and technologies including: Ultra high vacuum SPM, Cryo free low temperature solutions, XPS/ESCA, an introduction to atomic force microscopy (AFM) and applications such as nanomechanics, In-situ heating and tensile characterisation using EBSD, Measuring Layer thicknesses and compositions using EDS, Nanomanipulation and fabrication within the SEM / FIB.

The host of last year's seminar Prof. Rudra Pratap, Chairperson at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, IISC Bangalore commented, "This seminar has been extremely well organised with competent speakers covering a variety of processes and tools for nano fabrication. It is great to have practitioners of the art give talks and provide tips and solutions based on their experience, something that cannot be found in text books."

"As a leading provider of high technology solutions, we actively listen and engage with our customers for mutual success, and hope to build long term relationships based on trust and respect", comments Mark Sefton, Sector Head of Oxford Instruments Nanotechnology Tools, "By providing these educational events in addition to our high technology tools and superior service, we are proving our commitment to our customers, encouraging discussion and cross dissemination of ideas that will benefit all those attending."

This seminar is free of charge but prior booking is essential. Bookings may be made at: www.oxinst.com/btnt2013
