CVD logoThe American CVD Equipment Corporation announced that it is entering into an industrial partnership with Penn State University.

Through the National Science Foundation’s Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) program, Penn State University (PSU) has been awarded $1.96 million for 2D Atomic-layer Research and Engineering (2-DARE). This PSU project will leverage CVD Equipment Corporation’s engineering and manufacturing capabilities to advance the deposition technologies and processes for producing novel 2D materials beyond graphene.

The main focus will be on developing and optimizing the techniques for producing crystalline 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) such as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) and tungsten diselenide (WSe2). This work will pave the way for the future production of 2D materials, as they find their place in widespread industrial applications.
