12 October 2012
Oxford Instruments attended the opening of the new Center for Quantum Devices at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen on Friday 28th of September 2012. The new center, founded by the Danish National Research foundation, will be led by Charles Marcus, one the world’s leading researchers in nanophysics. His research aims to use advanced materials to develop nanoelectronics comprising semiconducting nanowires, carbon nanotubes and superconducting systems and to develop new measurement techniques. The experiments are carried out at ultra low temperatures close to absolute zero.
By providing the ultra low temperature environment via its flagship product, TritonTM Cryofree® dilution refrigerator, Oxford Instruments is playing a major part in this research. Triton cools samples down to 10 mK without the need for liquid helium. The new laboratory incorporates seven Triton systems equipped with integrated high frequency coaxial cabling, 6/1/1 three axes superconducting magnet and bottom loading mechanism to enable rapid sample exchange. The latest systems have been delivered within three months, ready for the laboratory opening event.
Jonathan Flint, Chief Executive of Oxford Instruments, who attended the opening ceremony, and said: “Oxford Instruments is delighted to have taken part in the set-up of this new centre. Our mission is to be the nanotechnology tool supplier of choice to the Quantum Computing community and this collaboration helps us achieve exactly that. I am also very excited about the opportunities for Oxford Instruments in the nanotechnology research market. We are one of the few companies that can offer a wide range of tools and systems that can support nanotechnology from research through to manufacture”
