provides the equipment and technology to process graphite into graphene. It is largely done by means of a process called chemical vapor deposition CVD, thus- the name of this company.
They design, develop, and manufacture custom Chemical Vapor Deposition Systems. Although graphite suppliers are in abundance, there are still significant technological barriers to enter into the Graphene market. Creating Graphene films requires advanced technologies such as Chemical Vapor Deposition and the tools needed to handle the atom-sized film.
CVD Equipment Corporation stands to benefit from the numerous researchers developing the new technologies.
Graphene is the name, a processed derivative of graphite. Graphene is stronger than steel, more highly conductive than copper, and lighter than a feather. And graphene is truly the first two-dimensional material in the world. Graphene takes the form of a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice of carbon atoms - one atom thick. Think about that. And at 200 times the strength of structural steel, graphene is unlike any other material ever measured.
1) "Soon, even the developed world will be an emerging market hungry for a bigger, better, faster, lighter and more flexible future". -Biz Bluetree With over 200 customers worldwide, its operations are split into three divisions, each with its own operating manager.
2) For fabricators of planes, trains and automobiles, of skyscrapers, schools and hospitals - infrastructure, household-appliances and computers - the materials steel, aluminum, plastics and copper, and eventually silicon owned the 20th century.
3) Revolution like steel, Railroads, computer, and biomedicine. These materials built nations, enabled populations, birthed economies and for some created fortunes. They are the materials that propelled civilization and helped sustain life as we know it. Every day products like building materials and coatings will change.
4) Since its discovery in 2004 by scientists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov in a Manchester University laboratory - The products are limitless 5) institutional and commercial research on graphene has exploded making the disruptive material subject of over 100,000 academic papers.
Geim and Novoselov were awarded the Nobel Prize for their find, and later, in 2008 wrote in the journal; Science, that they had carved tiny electronic circuits out of graphene, where each transistor was barely larger than a single molicule.
6) "Beyond silicon microchip technology, he said , revolutionary developments in nanoelectronics, perhaps centering on graphene, may evolve.''
7) IBM has already developed a 100htz graphene transistor and NOK is on its way to break-through products continuing the current graphene research it started in 2006.
8) Graphene, carbon nanotubes can effectively stack transistors on top of one another on microchips, allowing for exponentially more transistors on a chip without increasing the size. More transistors power -less heat. 9) With the unstoppable march of progress, and this field being less than 10 years old, interestingly enough swift advances are just around the corner. Soon, even the developed world will be an emerging market - hungry for a bigger, better, faster, lighter and more flexible future.
10) Every industry could be changed by the new revolutionary -game changer. Silicon was the single most important material introduced to the technology industry. NANO will be the next industry to attract speculation money.
11) The impact graphene will imminent. The major uses of natural graphite in 2011 were estimated to be refractory applications and crucibles combined, 33%; foundry operations and steelmaking combined, 26%; brake linings, 7%; batteries and lubricants combined, 5%; and other applications, 29%.
12) the graphene industry is an infancy.
13) The CVD/ Nano division operates an Application Library and supplies Chemical Vapor Deposition Solutions for use in the research and development of carbon nanotubes, semiconductor fabrication, LEDs, nanowires, solar cells,
14) The Stainless Design Concept (SDC) division designs and manufactures ultra-high purity gas and chemical delivery control systems. These systems are used for semiconductor fabrication, carbon nanotubes, solar cells, nanowires, and other various applications.
15) The Conceptronic division provides electronic assemble solutions. These solutions are used for printed circuit board assembly and semiconductor packaging.
16) seemingly unlimited applications Cars, batteries, chips, Chemicals, space, electronics, pigments, . Some of the newer discoveries of this material are attracting new industries.
17) Timing is everything- Market is ripe for a turn around in areas CVD shines like solar power, LEDs, med-tech and nanotechnology. Remember the technology boom (90s) and Silicone influences in electronics.
18) Engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute created a battery using graphene that can charge 10 times faster than a traditional battery. 19) Northwestern University has discovered making a graphene electrode can make lithium-ion batteries last longer and charge faster. 20) Researchers at the UCLA Kaner Laboratory have explored making a super capacitor (a battery/capacitor hybrid). Graphene NanoChem developed a method to extract graphene from biogases and are applying the material in mixtures used in gas and oil exploration.
21) an iPad as thin as a sheet of paper, envision a completely transparent smartphone, and now imagine the future. Think about light cars, trains and space ships and an electric car that doesn’t ever have to be plugged in.
22)This 2D material is the thinnest, strongest material ever discovered and is referred to as the “miracle material.” Its conductive qualities are as good as copper and it is almost completely transparent. So what does this mean for the tech industry?
23) Customers include industry giants such as Acer, BP Solar, Hewlett-Packard , # IBM , Intel Sharp, and Xerox .
240 new discoveries of nanotechnologies (Graphene especially) are expanding at a rapid pace. Industry leaders want to make sure they stay ahead of the curve.
