Aixtron logoAixtron announced today that Osaka University in Japan placed an order for a 4" AIXTRON BM Pro system. The University will use the new equipment to produce carbon nanotube (CNT) and graphene structures for bio-sensors. The aim is to combine graphene field-effect transistors with organic chemicals, such as antibodies, antigens and aptamers to allow electrical detection of specific proteins. The BM Pro system will also be used to produce carbon nanotubes for micro-electromechanical-systems (MEMS) and energy storage devices.
