AVS 2022

Meet Oxford Instruments at the AVS 68th International Symposium & Exhibition 2022 (Booth No. 917).

The AVS 68th International Symposium and Exhibition will be focusing on emerging topics related to materials, processing & interfaces with associated cutting edge issues in both the research and manufacturing communities. The theme of the Symposium “Imperfectly Perfect Materials” reflects the cross-cutting importance of defects in materials across the different programs in AVS. 

During the AVS 68 Symposium, there will be two Oxford Instruments presentations:

Ted Limpoco, Application Specialist - AR Applications in Oxford Instruments Asylum Research Inc. will be giving a talk on Tuesday, November 8, 1:40 pm – 2:00 pm (Eastern), room Hall A

Talk Title: AFM - The Instrument of Choice for Twisted Graphene Preparation and Characterization

 Precise control over the manipulation of graphene and in-depth characterization of the resulting sample properties are crucial steps in the preparation of new and performant 2D material-based devices. To achieve this‚ a high-performance Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) is the instrument of choice. We present here the best imaging modes and setups to facilitate the twisted graphene sample preparation and characterization. Topography‚ conductivity‚ friction and piezoelectric data will be shown and discussed in the context of sample preparation and the expected sample properties.

Dr Harm Knoops, Atomic Scale Segment Specialist in Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology will be giving a talk on Thursday, November 10, 11:40am - 12:20pm (Eastern), room 302.

Talk Title: Atomic Scale Processing for Quantum Computing

With the increasing technological readiness of quantum technology (QT) the field has to start focusing on scalable fabrication methods for quantum bits (qubits) and quantum circuits. This contribution will focus on the enabling role atomic scale processing (ASP) methods such as atomic layer deposition (ALD) and atomic layer etching could play in scaling of QT. The main focus will relate to superconducting qubits and processing of superconducting nanolayers.
