Arrays of precisely positioned nanostructures are at the forefront of nanophotonics, but their production is a demanding task with strict cleanroom-based nanofabrication requirements. Our original capillarity-assisted particle deposition machinery can produce high-quality nanoparticle arrays by using colloidal solutions and patterned templates.
High precision motorized linear translation stage for the accurate deposition process.
PID-based Peltier temperature controller for controlled solvent evaporation.
Camera is coupled with a microscope for the process inspection.
Manual X-Y positioning under the microscope for convenient examination
100% of deposition
Principle of use
Speed covering fromum/s to mm/s
Covering area up to 1x2cm2
Working temperatureup to 70°C
The sample is fixed with the vacuum chuck
The process of the deposition is controlled throughout the microscope objective and digital camera.
If the nanoparticle deposition seems too complicated, make sure to have a look at our readily available nanoparticle arrays!
