PlanarTECH announced today that UK’s 2-DTech, a graphene company at the University of Manchester, has ordered an enhanced planarGROW-4S CVD system. The system, which was ordered in Q3 2012 and delivered in Q4 2012 will be used to supply high-quality graphene to researchers at Manchester, where Nobel-prize winning Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov research graphene, as well as to researchers throughout the world.
The planarGROW-4S system has been enhanced to include a 3-zone 1,400C high-temperature furnace and an Oerlikon turbopump for ultra-high vacuum operation. PlanarTECH has also introduced new CVD growth products: the planarGROW-2S-BN CVD system for boron nitride synthesis; the Uni-G2D micro Raman system for graphene; and the planarSPUTTER-2B for simple sputtering tasks.
PlanarTECH is a young CVD machine company serving the graphene community, having started to show activity on the graphene market just last year. 2D-Tech was recently established as a spinoff of the University of Manchester.
