STANFORD, CA -- John Ciraldo, Research Associate for Northwestern University’s Micro/Nano Fabrication Facility (NUFAB), was invited to the 2017 National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure Atomic Layer Deposition/Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (NNCI ALD/MOCVD) Symposium at Stanford University April 6-7th.

As a facility under the SHyNE Resource, NUFAB provides the whole range of nanofabrication equipment and technical expertise to Northwestern as well as other academic and industrial researchers.

U.C. Berkeley Professor Constance J. Chang-Hasnain presents a talk on the production of novel structures by use of anisotopically deposited semiconductors by Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD)

The symposium brought many NNCI/NNIN ALD/MOCVD engineers and researchers together to discuss the status of their installations, the problems they have experienced and the solutions they have designed. The first day included a review of ALD/MOCVD systems and capabilities at the various NNCI/NNIN sites. Ciraldo had the opportunity to introduce NUFAB and its’ capabilities for internal and external users. The second day of the conference was filled with speakers in the ALD and MOCVD world, technical talks, and an ALD/MOCVD User Meeting.

Speakers at the Symposium included Prof. Andrew Kummel of UCSD, Prof. Sean Barry of Carleton University in Ottowa, Prof. Stacey Bent of Stanford University, Prof. Connie Chang-Hasnain of Berkeley, and Prof. Debbie Senesky of Stanford University.

SHyNE Resource was started in September of 2015 as part of the National Science Foundation's National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NCCI) and works to provide a national network of facilities to support external users.
