Oxford Instruments’ ‘Nanoscale Plasma Processing’ workshop at MTL, Cambridge, MA, USA was a great success
02 January 2013

The first workshop organised by Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology at MIT’s Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), Cambridge, MA in December was attended by a wide audience, and hailed a great success.  It addressed the latest research and technologies in plasma etch and deposition, via technical presentations and discussions focussing on latest innovations, as well as a networking lunch.

Dr. Vicky Diadiuk, Associate Director, Operations, at MTL, commented: ” This was an excellent workshop, and the talks presented a huge amount of very useful information, allowing our students and researchers to learn more about Atomic Layer Deposition and plasma processing from the experts, while also attracting participants from the wider technical community. Many of the attendees have reached out to tell me how much they learnt about the processes discussed. I think this is a really good way for Oxford Instruments to highlight the expertise of its staff.”

“We’ve been hosting these successful seminars worldwide for several years, and were delighted that such recognised speakers as Prof. Erwin Kessels, Technical University Eindhoven and Vince Genova, Cornell University agreed to participate. Their input, together with talks from our own specialists combined to make an informative and interesting day”, said Stuart Mitchell, VP Sales for Oxford Instruments America Inc, “These workshops provide an ideal opportunity for academic and industrial technologists to network and share ideas, and we are delighted to have held this joint workshop with the Microsystems Technology Laboratories.”

Presentations included talks on Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) process and applications; an overview of plasma etch, PECVD & TEOS processes, as well MEMS & nanoscale applications. These are all key areas of expertise for Oxford Instruments. The company aims to meet its customers’ needs through advanced technology and service, and our global series of Seminars reinforce this.
