Aixtron announced that Korea's Pusan National University (PNU) purchased an AIXTRON 4-inch Black Magic PECVD system. The system will be used for the production of graphene and carbon nanotubes - for research on renewable energy devices. The system was already installed at Pusan's National Core Research Center (NCRC).
Professor Kwang-Ho Kim explains that their reserach focuses on developing novel hybrid structures containing CNT and Graphene which utilize the unique physical and electronic properties of these materials. These structures are applied in electronic devices such as solar cells and sensors.
