Complete reduction of graphene oxide flakes produced from graphite in a mass-production manner is highly interesting. In a joint research project between the Ångström Laboratory and Fudan University in Shanghai, a reduction procedure that combines the ordinary chemical method with microwave treatment is investigated.
Solibro Research, in collaboration with the solar cell group in the Myfab-Ångström laboratory, set a new world record for CIGS cells in 2014.
Researchers at the Division of Nanotechnology and Functional Materials, Uppsala University, have developed a paper filter, which can remove virus particles with an efficiency matching that of the best industrial virus filters.
A new tool, for conventional vapour priming and image reversal, was recently installed at MSL. Image reversal is a process where exposed areas of positive resist remain after processing (thus behaving like a negative resist). This offers several advantages, such as:
Better resolution compared to negative resist.
Negative sidewall profile suitable for liftoff processing.
Possibility to control sidewall profile with exposure dose.
Possibility to get positive or negative images with the same mask independent of...
ÅAC Microtec has created a new laboratory for development and production of electronic modules in the MSL cleanroom.
May 21-25 the Ångström Laboratory, in collaboration with CEI-Europe, will give the course Thin Film Deposition at the Nanoscale: Mechanisms and Applications
