  • SEMINAR: 2020 Christmas Lecture for the Midlands Centre for Data-Driven Metrology

    Prof Peter de Groot (Zygo Corporation) will present the 2020 Christmas lecture for the Midlands Centre for Data-Driven Metrology

    Wednesday, December 16th 2020, 15.00-16.00

    Abstract: Optical instruments have long played a role in manufacturing, and strong arguments favour accelerated adoption of fast, non-contact measurements of surfaces, shapes and positions as an enabler for industry 4.0. High-precision techniques such as optical interferometry have advanced considerably and have found applications ranging from semiconductor wafer lithography to automotive engine production.

    In spite of clear benefits, there are persistent obstacles to the more widespread adoption of optical techniques. Many of these obstacles are technical; but others reflect the cultural gaps between academia, makers of optical instruments, standards organisations and end users. In this talk, I propose that understanding these cultural differences can assist in adapting optical methods to the most critical needs of data-driven manufacturing.

  • WEBINAR: Learn with VSParticle

    We would like to invite you to the upcoming webinar ‘Producing nanoaerosols by spark ablation using the VSP-G1 Nanoparticle Generator ’, presented by CTO  DR.IR. Tobias V. Pfeiffer of VSParticle

    Tuesday, December 1st 2020 at 08:00am

    We are continuously exposed to a plethora of airborne particles, i.e. aerosols, such as pollen, smoke, automotive emissions, and viruses. Test aerosols play an important part in building understanding of how exposure to aerosolised nanoparticles affects our health, and in developing technologies and regulations that ensure good air quality for all.

    This webinar will be an introduction on several basic aerosol processes related to the generation and transport of (nano)aerosols. The generation of nanoaerosols by spark ablation is presented in context of these processes, and several use cases in emissions, nanoparticle exposure and toxicity studies are discussed.

    The aim of the webinar is to provide insight into how the VSP-G1 Nanoparticle Generator can be used to generate model aerosols on demand. While the focus lies on airborne exposure, the same processes and principles can be applied in nanomaterial manufacturing for other applications.

    We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020 at 08:00.

  • Large Area Ion Milling with the Fischione M1062 TrionMill

    A fully automated tabletop argon ion mill that features highly flexible milling parameter adjustment. The instrument offers large-scale milling of planar and cross section samples. Samples of up to 50 mm diameter are effectively processed with three ion sources, which creates the largest and most uniform flat area achievable by ion milling. Allows the direct transfer of environmentally sensitive materials to a SEM or FIB.

    • Three independently adjustable TrueFocus ion sources
    • Planar sample sizes up to 50 mm diameter by 25 mm height
    • Controllable beam diameter over a wide range of operating energies (100 eV to 10 keV)
    • Liquid nitrogen-cooled sample stage (optional)
    • Vacuum/inert gas/cryogenic transfer system protects environmentally sensitive samples (optional)

    The position of each of the three ion sources is independently adjustable; different beam positions enable different milling characteristics. For example, aligning the ion beams in the default position:
    (a) was ideal for preparing a 4.5 mm semiconductor solder bump cross-section sample for SEM analyses (b).
    However, the large planar milling beam positioning (c) was optimal for preparing a 50 mm copper sample (d) for SEM and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) analyses (e) of the (clockwise from left) centre top, right middle, right bottom, and left bottom areas of the sample.
