New 2D materials Furnace installed

We have just installed a new metal organic chemicalMOCVD13 vapor deposition furnace from PlanarTECH inside the MNTL cleanroom. We helped PlanarTECH design the MOCVD system so that we can simultaneously test growth of new experimental 2D materials, vary the chemistry during growth to produce alloys and heterostructures, and reliably grow wafer scale monolayers. We are excited to start using the system this summer, and see what it is capable of!

The MNTL has a highlight about this system: http://mntl.illinois.edu/news/article/16487

We are Hiring!

We are looking for talented undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs to help build our new research program. Email arendv@illinois.edu for information.
