Product News: University Uses NanoInk's DPN® 5000 System for the Fabrication of Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials

10 Feb 2011

Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton, U.K. will be using a DPN® 5000 System for the fabrication of nanostructured photonic metamaterials, nanophotonics and sensors. NanoInk’s DPN 5000 System is a full-featured, dedicated instrument for versatile nanopatterning of a variety of materials with nanoscale accuracy and precision. With its user-friendly interface, it is possible to easily design complex patterns while also precisely controlling the tip movements during the writing process.

“NanoInk’s DPN 5000 system provides unique advantages in terms of materials deposition capability and scalability and we believe that many exciting research and commercial opportunities will develop from this technology,” said Dr. Kevin MacDonald, Senior Research Fellow at the ORC. “It will be particularly important in the development of our research on nanophotonics, metamaterials and optical  sensors.”

“The DPN 5000 enhances the Optoelectronics Research Centre’s world class nanoscale research in the areas of applied photonics and nanotechnology. It has the ability to deliver unique capabilities in new areas of research, including nanobiology applications,” said Robert Marchmont, General Manager of Europe, the Middle East and Africa for NanoInk. “We look forward to being active collaboration partners with this internationally renowned centre.”
