Thin films are produced from layers of materials ranging from nanometres to micrometres in height. They are increasingly common and are being used in integrated circuit design, optical coatings, protective coatings, and environmental sensing. Thin films can be fabricated using a variety of...
Advanced methods in Glancing Angle Deposition to control thin film morphology, microstructure and textureDownload
Structuring of material on the nanoscale is enabling new functional materials and improving existing technologies. Glancing angle deposition (GLAD) is a physical vapor deposition technique that enables thin film fabrication with engineered columnar structures on the (10 to 100) nm scales. In this...
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of Moore's law, which has described the exponential progress in semiconductor patterning technologies, enabling creation of smaller circuitry features at greater densities. These continued hardware developments, economically mass manufactured, have made possible...
The purpose of this research was to study the applicability of management system standards (MSSs) in a research and development (R&D)-oriented nanotechnology setting. Since multiple quality and R&D-specific standards were found to be relevant in such environments, a methodology for the...
This research examines the applications of novel technologies (nanotechnology and genomics) and the public’s purchasing intentions in the Canadian food industry (national online surveys). Canadian consumers’ preferences and their willingness to pay for four hypothetical products treated with two...
Comparative analysis, modeling and simulation of Nanocrystal synthesis by Physical Vapor Deposition methodsDownload
Nanotechnology is rapidly becoming one of the most influential frontiers of technology. Nanocrystal (NC) synthesis is potentially one of the central processes in nanoelectronics due to its ability to improve performance of electronics devices. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) is one of the most...
Glancing angle deposition (GLAD) is a thin film deposition technique that utilizes oblique vapour incidence and substrate rotation to grow various nanocolumn structures. The growth of these structures is heavily influenced by the substrate temperature during deposition. Therefore, in-situ...
Over the past fifteen years, a rich program of research has emerged among scholars interested in the role of categories within fields and industries. In this context, studies have shown that categories shape organizational and market processes by grouping firms and products in ways that convey...
Advanced optical technologies profoundly impact countless aspects of modern life. At the heart of these technologies is the manipulation of light using optical materials. Currently, optical technologies are created using naturally occurring materials. However, a new and exciting approach is to...
This work investigates the use of nanoimprint lithography for creating nanoscale resonator devices for applications in mass sensing. A bilayer resist consisting of PMMA 495/LOR 3A allowed the ideal imprint yield for resonators with widths ranging from 300 nm down to 120 nm. Resonators with...
