Aixtron announced today that China's National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) ordered a BM R&D system to grow graphene and CNTs on 2" substrates.

Dr. Qing Dai from NCNST says that their research currently focuses on the characterization of CNTs and on plasmonic properties of graphene. They aim to build nanophotonic devices such as terahertz waveguides. The BM system will also be used to grow 3D nanostructures combining CNT and graphene.
