MEMS factory in Russia. Success of those who work Domestic manufacturers of high-tech products often face problems in marketing of their products both in the domestic and foreign markets. It is no secret that many components for nanoindustry and microelectronics are imported, purchased mainly from European and Asian markets. The implementation of a comprehensive program of import substitution in our country covers almost all sectors of the Russian industry shows outstanding results in some of them. What about the nanoindustry? For information we turned to Belostotskiy Sergey Georgievich, PhD, Deputy General Director of Mapper LLC.
Automation of 1d measurement instruments calibration This paper describes the issues related to calibration of a hand-held measuring instruments and development of the automated reference instruments for these purposes. A schematic diagram of the automatic instrument control system is presented. Considered are possible errors that require additional research and measures to eliminate or minimize them.
Scanning probe microscopy in thin film studies As a part of the Russian-Iranian project "Initiation of local chemical reactions in deposited thin films using scanning probe microscopy", the investigations were continued with the use of scanning probe and capillary microscopy to create multi-parametric lithography. Original results were obtained on controlled surface modification, which is achieved through the fabrication of multichannel capillaries. Accuracy of capillary nanolithography corresponds to the level of units of nanometers.
Felix Holzner presents the Swisslitho SwissLitho is a young high-tech company with the vision to change the way nanostructures are commonly made. Their unique nanolithography tools, called NanoFrazor, trace their origins to the Millipede project from IBM Research Zurich. The multiple-patented technology uses heatable silicon tips for patterning and simultaneous imaging of arbitrary high-resolution nanostructures. The NanoFrazor opens up new and unprecedented possibilities for nanofabrication in order to accelerate scientific and technological progress in all fields of nanotechnology. Dr. Felix Holzner kindly answers on our questions.
Bandpass filters produced with an EOSS® sputtering system – enhanced sputter-up production tools for high quality optical coatings Different bandpass filters are presented in this article, like infrared light and triple bandpass filters, produced with a high precision optical coater, which concept is based on multiple dual cylindrical sputtering sources, an RF plasma source, and a rotating turntable as sample holder. Thin films were prepared by metallic mode sputtering with layer uniformities of better than 99.75% precision.
Mapping of mechanical properties for diagnostics of inclusions in complex multi-phase Minerals A method of mapping mechanical properties is demonstrated. It is an illustrative instrument to visualize distribution of properties of heterogeneous and multiphase materials. A possibility to construct multi-layer interactive maps and analyze the material properties distribution is shown.
Scanning probe microscopy of 2D nanostructures for energy storage and catalysts As a part of the work to modify the structure and determine the physicochemical and electrophysical characteristics of 2D nanoscale structures, their conductivity was studied. The data on the electrical conductivity of TiS3 structures on the surface of silicon oxide were obtained. The conductivity of graphene and graphite was measured by resistive scanning microscopy. The data were obtained using a FemtoScan microscope.
Workshop of Eurointech collects lead manufacturers and distributors of high-tech equipment Every year, Eurointech conducts a cycle of seminars to which employees of Russian enterprises are invited, wishing to receive an information on the modern technologies, as well as representatives of companies manufactured the high-tech equipment. Eurointech is well known company in Russia as a supplier of technological equipment for the production of the electronics and microelectronics, a microwave equipment and software for designing and creating printed circuit boards and various electronic devices, including MEMS. During the seminars, Eurointech presents its solutions, describes in detail and constructively their advantages in comparison with competing manufacturers, talks about the prospects.
Structure of metal-carbon nanocomposite based on pyrolysed derivatives of diphthalocyanines for immobilization of radioactive waste The structure of metal-carbon nanocomposites obtained by pyrolysed yttrium diphthalocyanine derivatives was established by transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. It is shown that during high-temperature pyrolysis α-yttrium crystals forms a wide-range network of nanoclusters in a graphitized carbon matrix on a scale of tens of micrometers. The features of structuring studied on a model object are common for radioactive isotopes of lanthanides and actinides, which creates the scientific basis for using metal-carbon nanocomposites as matrices for immobilization of high-level waste from spent nuclear fuel.
Service-production site and design office of ZENCO PLASMA How does the formation of a modern, high-tech enterprise go? With the accumulation of the initial capital. What is next, expanding sales and trading, trading , and trading ? Many get bogged down and stop at this stage, but not those who we are making a report of, and from the factory - the company ZENCO PLASMA.
The influence of 1265 nm laser radiation on human adenocarcinoma cells To date, the mechanism responsible for photobiomodulation oxidative stress induced by 1265 nm laser light is unclear, but mitochondria are considered the most probable acceptors of laser radiation at this wavelength. We studied oxidative stress, mitochondrial potential, the level of reduced glutathione, and the viability of human adenocarcinoma cells. Narrow-band and broad-band laser irradiation at the doses of 9.45 and 66.6-400 J/cm2, respectively, caused cell death, an increase of reactive oxygen species intracellular concentration and a disturbance of the mitochondrial functions. Thus, lasers at the wavelength of 1265 nm affect HCT116 cells through mitochondrial damage, and the dose increase contributes to cell damage without the heating effect.
Deposition of multilayer functional thin films by the method of magnetron spraying on the "MAGNA TM 150-01K" installation This paper presents a new development of JSC "Research Institute of Precision Engineering" - vacuum installation "MAGNA TM 150-01K." Considered are the device and principle of operation. The installation implemented a technological process of deposition of multilayer thin films on the silicon wafers with a diameter of 100–150 mm by magnetron spaying. Coatings were applied in a single vacuum cycle from three targets with loading and unloading of plates from a cassette into a cassette in a lock chamber built into a clean room. Layers of titanium and titanium nitride were deposited sequentially from a single titanium target, and a layer of aluminum (Al) was deposited from two other aluminum targets.
