Surrey Nanosystems sells growth system to universities

Carbon nanotubes company Surrey Nanosystems has announced the first sales of its nanomaterial growth system, the Nanogrowth-Catalyst, to the École Polytechnique of Montreal and the University of Surrey’s Advanced Technology Institute.

These research institutions chose the Nanogrowth-Catalyst as a platform for their work on materials including carbon nanotubes, silicon nanowires, graphene and nanoparticles for semiconductor, optical device and other applications.

The growth system’s multi-chamber design ensures the purest nanomaterial processing conditions by continuously maintaining the substrate under vacuum, for processes ranging from the deposition of catalysts to the growth of materials.
